The Righteous Mind

Written by Jonathan Haidt

The Righteous Mind:  Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion offers an psychological explanation for the divisiveness that hinders civil progress and well-being, results in wars and the failure to protect the environment.  Ideologies have deep-seated historical and biological origins.  Haidt explains how innate preferences and thought processes can be manipulated to cause groups of people to act against their own best self-interests.  For those who wonder why we can't have a perfect, harmonious and environmentally-sustainable world now, The Righteous Mind explains the matrix that has resulted in our present situation and offers some suggestions as to how to work within in.
