Description

The Center for Ethics and Leadership invites students, faculty and staff to a lunchtime discussion on moral psychology based on the work of Jonathan Haidt:

"As America descends deeper into polarization and paralysis, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has done the seemingly impossible—challenged 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. [Haidt illustrates in his book The Righteous Mind] 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."

Lunch will be provided with a RSVP.
