In The Righteous Mind, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt explores the origins of our divisions and points the way forward to mutual understanding. His starting point is moral intuition - the nearly instantaneous perceptions we all have about other people and the things they do.

Haidt shows us how these intuitions differ across cultures, including the cultures of the political left and right.
