origins of resistance to science

An intriguing piece in Science this week about the childhood origins of adult resistance to scientific ideas. It’s a review, not experimental, and as such doesn’t test any of the hypotheses directly. It’s also USA-centric without really delving into the particularities of the American situation, and there are no substantial further suggestions, but that might be space constraints. It’s worth a read.
