Astonishing Discovery: Babies Know Good from Evil

Teresa Neumann : May 12, 2010 : David Derbyshire - The Daily Mail

"You can see glimmers of moral thought, moral judgment and moral feeling even in the first year of life. Some sense of good and evil seems to be bred in the bones."

Calling the series of experiments "astonishing," the Daily Mail reports that psychologists now suggest the understanding of what is right and wrong may be "hardwired" into the brain at birth after all.

Professor Paul Bloom, a psychologist at Yale University in Connecticut, said: "A growing body of evidence suggests that humans do have a rudimentary moral sense from the very start of life. With the help of well designed experiments, you can see glimmers of moral thought, moral judgment and moral feeling even in the first year of life. Some sense of good and evil seems to be bred in the bones."
