De sociale psychologie van goedgelovigheid

Er is een nieuw boek verschenen over goedgelovigheid: The Social Psychology of Gullibility. Het boek bevat bijdragen van een groot aantal sociaal psychologen. Het gaat in op de oorzaken, functies en gevolgen van goedgelovigheid en de psychologische processen die het in de hand werken of afremmen. Dat de wetenschappelijke psychologie goedgelovigheid serieus gaat onderzoeken lijkt me een goede zaak in deze tijd waarin we van alle kanten bestookt worden met onwaarheden en misinformatie met alle negatieve consequenties van dien.
