"How The Mind Works"

Washington Post article on a study of the "persistence of myth":

But the new psychological studies show that denials and clarifications, for all their intuitive appeal, can paradoxically contribute to the resiliency of popular myths... The research is painting a broad new understanding of how the mind works.
