This book was recommended to me by my 19 year son who is a neuroscience & philosophy
major at a Virginia university. He said "it should be required reading for all Americans, read it." I'm a new PhD student in political science & international studies, this the timing was perfect. I learned a tremendous amount about unconscious assumptions I held, and recent historical developments during my lifetime. The insights, analysis and recommendations Professor Haidt makes in The Righteous Mind are likely to have a lasting impact on our collective political and moral lives.

Clearly and beautifully conceived and written, I can't wait to read the book format and delve into the bibliography after listening to the audio book. I've already recommended this book to several scholars and friends. It is good therapy if you're watching and engaged with the US political landscape in any capacity. Many thanks to Jonathan Haidt for an outstanding contribution to the field of moral psychology, and for knitting together neuroscience, anthropology, and political sociology -- well done!
