  • @michelletandler Maybe: The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion to Tweet
  • @conor64 How about the same three books to all three? "The Righteous Mind" by @JonHaidt "A Conflict of Visions" by @ThomasSowell "The Machiavellians" by James Burnham to Tweet
  • When reading popular books in a field I'm often uncertain how to treat the evidence. I'm reading Haidt's "The Righteous Mind". Fascinating, and much agrees with my prejudices. But I worry about caveats & counter-evidence that may not have made it into the bookLink to Tweet
  • On morality and politics, and on the two kinds of fairness, I can't recommend this book by @JonHaidt too highly: to Tweet
  • I read the first hundred pages of @JonHaidt’s Righteous Mind (“why good people are divided by politics and religion”) tonight. It’s both excellent and the most conversationally-written book I’ve read in recent memory.Link to Tweet
  • @jasoncwarner I'm sure there are some articles online which summarize their theories but for Haidt "the righteous mind" is the book and for Lakoff "don't think of an elephant"Link to Tweet
  • A decent #book but too verbose. Thankfully, each chapter comes with a summary at the end of it so I could do with just the summary for last few chapters. to Tweet
  • @JimmyRis I think most people should read this book ASAP - though, personally, I feel I read both this and The Righteous Mind "too late" (not that this makes them any less great).Link to Tweet
  • finally read Righteous Mind by @JonHaidt - one of the best books I've read on the last decade. HIGHLY recommend. to Tweet
  • Dear liberals & conservatives, what's the point of arguing about the conclusions if you disagree about the premises? to Tweet
