Brian Nosek- Ideology and Automaticity

Brian Nosek's presentation from the 2008 Project on Law and Mind Sciences (PLMS) Conference.

"Listen to a partisan, and you might believe that ideology is the result of reasoned analysis of social life. Listen to the evidence, and you might be convinced that the partisans' reasons are the product of ideology, rather than the cause of it. My research group investigates the automatic basis of ideology and moral judgment, and how deliberative reasoning is a secondary act that emboldens or corrects the initial "gut" judgment."
