Jonathan Haidt Describes the Science Behind Modern Politics

By: Jaime Neely - Published: • References: thelavinagency & youtube
Social Psychologist and expert on human nature Jonathan Haidt shares his research on human morals and how it can be applied to understanding different political views in society today. Jonathan Haidt argues that the mind is born with five moral foundations that will pave the future of one's political values, which include harm/care, fairness/reciprocity, ingroup/loyalty, authority/respect and purity/sanctity. The important conclusion of his research is that the human mind is designed to align with like-minded individuals and then to divide against others, resulting in every individual believing his or values take precedence. Jonathan Haidt uses his research to encourage society to acknowledge that the differences in political opinions are rooted in human evolution and that not one truth exists; he hopes this will lead people to act in a more civil manner, by agreeing to disagree, and to accept society's differences.
