Interview with Jonathan Haidt, author of The “Righteous Mind”, discussing the nature of human nature, and how our brain affects our morality and politics. Haidt argues that reason often serves our emotions rather than the mind being in charge. We can be less interested in the truth and more interested in finding facts and stories that fit preconceived narratives and ideology. Haidt tries to understand why people come to different visions of morality and politics and how we might understand each other despite those differences.
