Jonathan Haidt

Jonathan Haidt is the Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University’s Stern School of Business. His research examines the intuitive foundations of morality and how morality varies across cultures—including the cul­tures of American liberals, conservatives, and libertarians. He is currently applying his research on moral psychology to business ethics. Haidt has a Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, and he spent most of his career (1995–2011) at the University of Virginia. He is the author of The Happiness Hypothesis, and of the New York Times bestseller The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion. His next book is tentatively titled Three Stories About Capitalism: The Moral Psychology of Economic Life. His email address is jhaidt@​stern.nyu.edu.
