Author: Jonathan Haidt
Reviewer:Dr. Frank Abrams, Professor Emeritus, Biological And Agricultural Engineering
Professor Haidt, a social psychologist, provides a cogent discussion of how liberals and conservatives construct their moral underpinnings. For all of us, Haidt says, in forming our viewpoints, emotions rule and our reasoning ability, at least at first, strongly supports where our emotions lead us. This book offers a way to empathetically view at least some of those who see things very differently.
