The Left And The Right Still Can't Agree: Jonathan Haidt Explains Why
As the review writes, "[Haidt's] framework for the different moral universes of liberals and conservatives struck me as a brilliant breakthrough." Haidt's thesis that "morality binds and blinds," was also called "compelling." Haidt is among the few academics that can write "compelling prose for the general public." A sweeping account of human morality its ties to our political beliefs, Haidt's book is equal parts intriguing and educational. The Righteous Mind debuted at #6 on The New York Times' Hardcover Nonfiction Bestseller List, and since its release Haidt has become a coveted speaker at TED. In addition to exploring the complex study of morality and politics, he is also an expert on happiness and is the author of The Happiness Hypothesis and Flourishing.
