Event Description
Jonathan Haidt is a social psychologist whose research examines the intuitive foundations of morality, he is the Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership at the NYU Stern School of Business.

Throughout this academic year members of the community have participated in conversations about his New York Times bestseller The Righteous Mind, which challenges readers to consider human nature, the origins of difference, and the potential for us to come together--across our various divides--to learn from one another.

In the liberal arts tradition, his case draws from a range of academic disciplines, including biology, economics, history, philosophy, political science, religion, and sociology, to answer the question, "Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion?"

This series of events will conclude with a public talk, given by Jonathan Haidt.
