Jonathan Haidt, again

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Last September, I posted links to Jonathan Haidt's extensive discourse, What Makes People Vote Republican?, and various extensive responses. Haidt is Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia where he conducts research on morality and emotion and how they vary across cultures. Now, writer Tom Jacobs reports in Miller-McCune magazine about Haidt's view of morality as a team sport: "Morality is not just about how we treat each other, as most liberals think....It is also about binding groups together and supporting essential institutions."
