September Actions & Speaker - Jonathan Haidt, Author Of The Righteous Mind

Average Rating:

0b514fa0b6cbc6397ffc81caec1d6d49-huge-haEach month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker.

Saturday, September 14th, at 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT

How did American politics get to be so dysfunctional? It has a lot to do with psychology, and our guest this month, Jonathan Haidt, will help us wrap our heads around this phenomenon. A Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University Stern School of Business, he is the author of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion. Haidt's book explains the origins of the human moral sense and how variations in moral intuitions can help explain the polarization and dysfunction of American politics.
