Inhaltsangabe

Why can’t our political leaders work together as threats loom and problems mount? Why do people so readily assume the worst about the motives of their fellow citizens?

In The Righteous Mind, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt explores the origins of our divisions and points the way forward to mutual understanding. His starting point is moral intuition - the nearly instantaneous perceptions we all have about other people and the things they do. These intuitions feel like self-evident truths, making us righteously certain that those who see things differently are wrong.

Haidt shows us how these intuitions differ across cultures, including the cultures of the political left and right. He blends his own research findings with those of anthropologists, historians, and other psychologists to draw a map of the moral domain, and he explains why conservatives can navigate that map more skillfully than can liberals. He then examines the origins of morality, overturning the view that evolution made us fundamentally selfish creatures.

But rather than arguing that we are innately altruistic, he makes a more subtle claim - that we are fundamentally groupish. It is our groupishness, he explains, that leads to our greatest joys, our religious divisions, and our political affiliations. In a stunning final chapter on ideology and civility, Haidt shows what each side is right about, and why we need the insights of liberals, conservatives, and libertarians to flourish as a nation.

Kritikerstimmen

"Haidt is looking for more than victory. He's looking for wisdom. That's what makes The Righteous Mind well worth reading…. a landmark contribution to humanity’s understanding of itself.” ( The New York Times Book Review)

Interesting, but a group selection heretic

Really enjoyed the first two parts of the book. Then goes off on a heretical path and argues against the selfish gene version of evolution. He really does a bad job at this and all too often I felt like arguing against his points or educating him on the haploid diploid stuff. Would be a 4 or 5 star without the group selection.

One of the must reads nowadays

Every one interested in the condition of humans and society should read this. You will be rewarded with a far better understanding of your self and the society you are living in. The reported experiments to reveal the moral matrix of individuals are gem stones of social psychology

important in today's politically polarized world

Haidt does a great job explaining the moral landscape of American (and global) politics in the times of left- and right-lurching politics. Get your politically radical relatives this book!

Kluges Buch

Ein kluges Buch, das dem Leser ein Handwerkszeug zur Analyse gesellschaftlicher Diskussionen gibt, insbesondere wenn die Auseinandersetzungen entlang ideologischer und kultureller Grenzen verlaufen.
