Moral Psychology

October 7, 2008

Why do people with such different opinions? It can’t be because everyone except us is stupid.

Jonathan Haidt is a psychologist, and this talk about the differences between how people see the world is a great addition to the ‘how to talk about climate change’ toolbox.

If everyone thinks they are right, we can’t just go charging in, we have to understand how the people we talk to see the world.

The last two minutes are especially insightful, but the whole thing is informative and entertaining!
