As America descends deeper into polarization and paralysis, social psychologist Jonathan Haidthas done the seemingly impossiblechallenged conventional thinking about morality, politics, and religion in a way that speaks to everyone on the political spectrum.Drawing on his twenty five years of groundbreaking research on moral psychology, he shows how moral judgments arise not from reason but from gut feelings. He shows why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians have such different intuitions about right and wrong, and he shows why each side is actually right about many of its central concerns.
