Description of The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt ePub
“The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion” is a tremendously thought-provoking book, well-written and accessible to non-specialists. Jonathan Haidt is the author of this amazing book. Jonathan has provided a scholarly insight into our moral functioning. He provided great insight into the moral issues which enrage conservatives. He has also highlighted the misguided aspects of liberal values. Jonathan clearly describes what is missing in current human dialogue around the globe. Haidt is right on the money in his exploration of the foundations of why we vote politically and believe as we do. It compares and contrasts the inborn traits that drive us in our beliefs of the rightness of conservative and/or liberal values and why we need both to survive. A thoughtful discussion about politics, morality, values, and how we can disagree about issues in a constructive way. A very insightful, well-written book that one goes back to and re-reads gaining additional, rational ways to look at both sides of the moral and political world. In “The Righteous Mind” Jonathan distinguishes between brain functions that he calls “intuitive” and those he calls “logical,” advancing persuasively the proposition that our initial moral judgments are largely intuitive and we use logic initially and primarily to defend the views we adopt intuitively. He uses evidence from social science experiments to back these views and to advance consequent interpretations of the source of our attitudes towards not only morality but politics.
If you are puzzled by how poorly economic self-interest predicts the vote, wonder how we acquire our moral principles, or how we might begin to overcome the lost ability of our elected representatives to compromise, Haidt has addressed these questions as a moral philosopher in the tradition of David Hume and a sociologist in the tradition of Emile Durkheim. But he is not an armchair theorist. Haidt’s positions are founded on sociological findings as well as empirical evolutionary biology of the sort that E.O. Wilson was rebuked for developing first in his comprehensive behavior treatise Sociobiology. Namely that all human science must recognize the inborn biases that our brains incline us toward. The tabula rasa of the post-WWII social sciences is being laid to rest. Humans are a dualistic combination of individual egos and group affiliation. We are both individualists and conformists, but the idea that we reason ourselves to morality is defunct. The reason is subordinated to the leading nature. Ultimate, “The Righteous Mind” is an informative, readable, fascinating. Easy to understand explanations of complex psychological findings based on an impressive amount of scientific research. A rewarding learning experience that is very thought-provoking.
