Harvard Prof Under Investigation for Fudging Data Results

Marc Hauser, a psychology professor and director of Harvard's Cognitive Evolution Laboratory, recorded monkeys doing more than they really did. The University is investigating.

Hauser was voted one of the University's most popular professors.

He is the author of Moral Minds: How Nature Designed Our Universal Sense of Right and Wrong (Ecco, 2006) and is at work on a forthcoming book titled Evilicious: Why We Evolved a Taste for Being Bad.

The Chronicle of Higher Education has the blow by blow dirt, here.



  1. A Psych Prof manipulating a study, shocking !!

  2. so are morals really for joe6packs only ? Is everybody in on the secret that morals/ethics are really for losers and they are at best relative measures ?

    We know WallSt is pioneer in this area...i guess everybody and every other field will catch-up slowly!

    i coudn't resist the urge to blame everything on wallst.

  3. So a 'morally challenged' psych professor gets caught doing immoral things. Oh the irony!
