The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

Thursday, September 20, 2012 8:00 AM to 9:15 AM


Why can't our political leaders work together as threats loom and problems mount? Why do people so readily assume the worst about the motives of their fellow citizens? Our moral intuition and fundamental "groupishness," which leads to our greatest joys, religious divisions, and political affiliations, could be to blame.

Jonathan Haidt is the Henry Kaufman Visiting Professor in the Business and Society Program Area at New York University Stern School of Business, and the author of The Happiness Hypothesis. He was a professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virigina for 16 years.
