About this Episode

Haidt's project is to understand why conservatives and liberals disagree about morality. Using groundbreaking social science research, he identifies a series of moral foundations that can explain why people seem to experience different moral intuitions. He argues that conservatives have at least five moral foundations, while liberals only have two. As a result, Haidt says, "Republicans understand moral psychology and Democrats don't."
