The Righteous Mind: Q&A with Dr. Jonathan Haidt

Play
Read more

Social Psychologist Jonathan Haidt, author of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion, shares a riveting explanation for the deepening and seemingly intractable partisan division in America’s politics. Turns out it has a lot more to do with the basics of human psychology and our moral reasoning habits than we’d care to admit. And – strangely enough – “elephants” are involved. 

In this episode (part 2 of The Righteous Mind program), Dr. Haidt takes questions from the audience and we hear reflections from engaged citizens who were present for Dr. Haidt's talk.

"You increase your odds of growth if you are able to tell a better story. If you are able to look on the bright side. Able to find the silver lining.” Dr. Jonathan Haidt is an American social psychologist and professor of ethical leadership at NYU Stern. He was recently named one of the world's top 50 thinkers and is the New York Times best-selling author of The Righteous Mind and The Coddling of the American Mind.  He also has 3 ted talks all of them with multiple million views. 

Some questions I ask: (5:31) Are we going to have some sort of post-traumatic growth after the coronavirus? (7:57) How can people draw lessons from this adversity? (14:51) Are you always going to benefit from adversity? Or do you need to do it in a specific way? (18:55) How often do you have to rewrite your narrative? (22:08) A lot of it is internal but there are also some external factors what might those be (talking about happiness)? (31:45) Now that university students are getting caught up in this rat race how can they find purpose there? (35:07) Can psychedelics help you find your purpose?

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion - Jonathan Haidt

Play

The Righteous Mind answers a deep and fundamental question: why can’t we all just get along? Why can’t Democrats and Republicans understand each other better? Haidt answers these better than anyone (ever) by breaking down the social psychology and brain science of why our species is so apt to join groups, take sides and fight. The Righteous Mind covers 17 years of Haidt’s research into moral psychology and human behavior, and he uses it to explain our divided world today. 

Plus, Hadit drops some bombs on our next book, Selfish Gene. #EmotionsFirstReasoningSecond #10%bee #BelongingNotBelieving

Play
Read more

Best selling author Dr. Jonathan Haidt joins us to discuss the psychology of America’s reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic and how to build resilience and thrive in this volatile, uncertain world. Along the way we explore the rise of micro aggression and “safetyism” on campuses, the moral roots of conservatives and liberals, the increasingly toxic polarization on social media and college campuses, and the implications for our democracy.

Dr. Haidt is a professor of social psychology at NYU-Stern and author of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion and co-author of The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas are Setting Up a Generation for Failure. He is also the co-founder of HeterodoxAcademy.org, a collaboration among nearly 2500 professors who are working to increase viewpoint diversity and freedom of inquiry in universities.

Review: The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt

Play
Read more
In this episode I continue the exploration of the evolutionary roots of morality with Jonathan Haidt's fantastic book, The Righteous Mind. In this book, Haidt delivers the killing blow to the rationalist delusion that I've been discussing since the early episodes. In addition, I examine the broad array of virtues encompassed by Haidt's moral foundations theory. This theory, and its political ramifications, continue to draw together evolutionary psychology, conservatism, and the golden mean proposed by Aristotle.

Haidt's project is to understand why conservatives and liberals disagree about morality. Using groundbreaking social science research, he identifies a series of moral foundations that can explain why people seem to experience different moral intuitions. He argues that conservatives have at least five moral foundations, while liberals only have two. As a result, Haidt says, "Republicans understand moral psychology and Democrats don't."
