The Study of Science Leads to Leftward Leanings – Pacific Standard: The Science of Society

Interesting study, however, it does not take into account that the whole institutionalized scientific system rewards through government grants, conclusion driven research and the pressures of social consensual acceptance which reinforces the leftward biases of science, as well as many other disciplines.  

While political partisans of all stripes have been known to take issue with research findings that contradict their positions, conservatives have come across as particularly anti-science of late. Columnist and commentator George Will, who dismisses the consensus opinion of climate-change researchers, recently expressed skepticism of the medical community’s assurances that Ebola cannot be caught via airborne transmission.

Will clearly perceives scientists as untrustworthy, their conclusions skewed by self-interest and preconceived notions. While this view is obviously self-serving—he really should check out the psychological notion of projection—it raises disturbing questions about whether science has become hopelessly politicized.

  • according to a research team led by Harvard University psychologist Christine Ma-Kellams, immersion in the world of science tends to shifts students’ attitudes toward the left side of the political spectrum.
