Astute parents often caution their offspring to avoid two topics of conversation: politics and religion. What makes otherwise temperate people so sensitive to these hot button subjects? Psychology professor and author Jonathan Haidt (The Happiness Hypothesis) thinks that he knows. In Righteous Mind, he explores the origins of morality, which he views as the basis for both religion and politics. His fascinating, intellectually adventurous investigation seems especially relevant as we enter an extended presidential election season laced with spirited controversies about political and religious differences. A sales and review success in hardcover; now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
