Dataset comes from pre-registered close replication of an experiment on reflection and reasoning in moral judgment (Paxton, Ungar, & Greene, 2012). A total number of 347 students from Czech Republic read a scenario involving incest between consenting adult siblings and an argument that supported the moral acceptability of such behavior. Authors manipulated the factors of argument strength (strong vs. weak) and the time which participants had to reflect on the argument (no time vs. 2 minutes). Participants rated the moral acceptability of the incestuous behavior.
