Cărți de Jonathan Haidt

Jonathan David Haidt (; born October 19, 1963) is an American social psychologist and Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University's Stern School of Business. His main areas of study are the psychology of morality and the moral emotions.

Haidt studied at Yale University and the University of Pennsylvania. He then performed post-doctoral research at the University of Chicago and in Orissa, India. Haidt was a professor at the University of Virginia from 1995 until 2011, when he joined the NYU Stern School of Business.

Haidt’s first book, The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom (2006), explored the relationship between ancient philosophies such as Stoicism and Buddhism and modern science. His second book, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion (2012), examined how morality is shaped by emotion and intuition more than by reasoning, and why differing political groups such as progressives, conservatives, and libertarians have such different notions of right and wrong.

His third book, The Coddling of the American Mind was released in 2018, with Greg Lukianoff, the president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. Haidt has attracted both support and criticism for his critique of the current state of universities and his interpretation of progressive values. Haidt has been named one of the "top global thinkers" by Foreign Policy magazine, and one of the "top world thinkers" by Prospect magazine. He is among the most cited researchers in political psychology and moral psychology, and has given four TED talks.
