When and why people think beliefs are "debunked" by scientific explanations of their origins

Dillon Plunkett, Lara Buchak, and Tania Lombrozo

Published in Mind & Language on 27 May 2019: https://doi.org/10.1111/mila.12238.

This repository contains the data collected in our experiments and a script that documents and reproduces our analyses.

Manuscript

The manuscript is available here and the supplementary materials here.

Data

The raw data for each experiment are in the data folder. Tidy data (with, e.g., more interpretable variable names) are available in the tidy-data subfolder.

Analyses

The analyses reported in the paper are performed in debunking.Rmd. Rendered versions (code and output together without needing to re-run the R code) are available as a PDF, HTML file, or Markdown file viewable directly on GitHub.
