Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion

“When it comes to moral judgments," Jonathan Haidt says, "we think we are scientists discovering the truth, but actually we are lawyers arguing for positions we arrived at by other means.” Jonathan explains “liberal” and “conservative” not as political affiliations, but as personality types. His own self-described views as “conservative-hating, religion-hating, secular liberal instincts” have been challenged by his own studies. Jonathan talks with Krista Tippett.
