Social Psychologist Jonathan Haidt, author of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion and The Happiness Hypothesis, has a riveting explanation for the deepening and seemingly intractable partisan division in America's politics. Turns out it has a lot more to do with the basics of human psychology and our moral reasoning habits than we'd care to admit. And - strangely enough - "elephants" are involved... Whether you're frustrated by our inability to engage constructively to solve problems, or just permanently perplexed by the thinking of people on the opposite side of the political divide, don't miss Jonathan Haidt. You'll never see politics quite the same again. With the way things have been going lately, we think that's probably a good thing.
Also hear Dr. Haidt speak on the 11th at the FSU Golden Tribe Lecture Series from 8 to 9:30 pm (Student Life Cinema) on the topic "The Righteous Mind: How morality binds us together and tears us apart." Free and open to the public as space allows once students are seated. For info: 644-3342 or online at www.thecenter.fsu.edu
