In this timely episode, Yael and Debbie discuss the work of social psychology researcher, Dr. Jonathan Haidt, who studies the psychology of political and moral opinions. We’ll explore why humans are a uniquely moralistic species, and how we can end up with such different beliefs about moral (as in, political and religious) issues. We’ll present some research-based suggestions for how we all might be able to work together to start to bridge the political divide.
