Jonathan Haidt

Professor Jonathan Haidt specializes in research on morality and emotion, and how they vary across cultures. He is currently studying the intuitive foundations of political ideology, and searching for ways to overcome the moralism of the American "culture wars." He and his students are also examining a variety of nearly unstudied moral emotions, such as awe, moral elevation, and emotional responses to cuteness and signs of tenderness.
