Research » Why Did We Invent Karma? | Moral Development |

Is there something about karma that makes it appealing to individuals in specific moments of their lives? A new study by Benjamin Converse, Jane Risen, and Travis Carter suggests that there is. In a series of experiments they found evidence to support the idea that when people face an important outcome that’s out of their control, they believe that being charitable can somehow induce a positive outcome.
