In The Righteous Mind, psychologist Jonathan Haidt answers some of the most compelling questions about human relationships: Why can it sometimes feel as though half the population is living in a different moral universe? Why do ideas such as 'fairness' and 'freedom' mean such different things to different people? Why is it so hard to see things from another viewpoint? Why do we come to blows over politics and religion? Jonathan Haidt reveals that we often find it hard to get along because our minds are hardwired to be moralistic, judgemental and self-righteous. He explores how morality evolved to enable us to form communities, and how moral values are not just about justice and equality - for some people authority, sanctity or loyalty matter more. Morality binds and blinds, but, using his own research, Haidt proves it is possible to liberate ourselves from the disputes that divide good people. 'A landmark contribution to humanity's understanding of itself' The New York Times 'A truly seminal book' David Goodhart, Prospect 'A tour de force - brave, brilliant, and eloquent. It will challenge the way you think about liberals and conservatives, atheism and religion, good and evil' Paul Bloom, author of How Pleasure Works 'Compelling . . . a fluid combination of erudition and entertainment' Ian Birrell, Observer 'Lucid and thought-provoking ... deserves to be widely read' Jenni Russell, Sunday Times Jonathan Haidt is a social and cultural psychologist. He has been on the faculty of the University of Virginia since 1995 and is currently a visiting professor of business ethics at New York University's Stern School of Business.

  1. Bästa boken senaste decenniet
    Anton1, 6 maj 2019

    Lättläst, initierad och intressant text om moralpsykologi och hur vår inre "moralpalett" påverkar våra politiska preferenser. En källa till många intressanta diskussioner vid middagsbordet!

  2. En ögonöppnare
    Ragnar, 12 december 2016

    En svårläst men mycket intressant bok om hur våra åsikter bestäms intuitivt och känslomässigt och först i efterhand rationaliseras med lämpliga argument som bekräftar åsiktens rättfärdighet, helt enkelt eftersom vi söker just sådana argument och bortser från alla andra som inte gör det. Också intressant med genomgången av de moraliska argument som vänster- resp. högerpersoner baserar sina åsikter på.
