Ted video of interest: Jonathan Haidt The Righteous Mind
My 1997 doctoral dissertation was a study of the moral development of transformational CEOs. I have continued my interest in the the life question, “Why do good people do not so good things regardless of their wealth, education and/or job title? ”
In the soon to be released book, The Righteous Mind, The Happiness Hypothesis author, Jonathan Haidt explores a version of that question as it applies to religion and politics. What makes a liberal a liberal and a conservative? More important, he charges his audience and readers — regardless of your liberal or conservative preference, to stay open to the conversation. I am in hopes his new book gives direction how to do that!
