Book Selection for January 19

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion,

by Jonathan Haidt

Pantheon Books, NY 2012


A brave, brilliant, and eloquent exploration of the most important issues of our time. Penetrating, yet accessible. Profound discussion. “Moral systems are interlocking sets of values, virtues, norms, practices, identities, institutions, technologies and evolved psychological mechanisms that work together to suppress or regulate self-interest and make cooperative societies possible.” (page 270)
