Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

April 25, 2012

Hour 1:           How do our political personas develop and can we heal the religious and political divisions that threaten our country? We’ll talk this hour with Jonathan Haidt [1], professor of psychology at the University of Virginia and visiting professor of business ethics at the NYU-Stern School of Business. His piece “Born This Way?” appears in the current issue of Reason [2] magazine and his new book is “The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion [3]” (Pantheon, 2012).
