Jonathan Haidt is a professor of business ethics at New York University’s Stern School of Business. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992 and then did post-doctoral research at the University of Chicago and in Orissa, India. Haidt’s research examines the intuitive foundations of morality, and how morality varies across cultures. In 2006, Haidt published The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom. His most recent book is The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion. He and his collaborators conduct research at YourMorals.org, a site where a quarter-million people have gone to learn more about their morality.
