Posted on: March 20, 2012

This New York Times op-ed from moral psychologist Jonathan Haidt brilliantly unpacks the political narratives embedded in recent rhetoric from both Democrats and Republicans. Haidt warns that demonizing opponents stirs up tribal reactions that can stand in the way of real solutions.

Haidt's new book, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion, is now available in stores.
