Jonathan Haidt: Religion, evolution, and the ecstasy of self-transcendence| 18mins
Director: TED | Producer: TED
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: United States
Psychologist Jonathan Haidt asks a simple but difficult question: why do we search for self-transcendence? Why do we attempt to lose ourselves? In a tour through the science of evolution by group selection, he proposes a provocative answer. Jonathan Haidt studies how -- and why -- we evolved to be moral. By understanding more about our moral roots, his hope is that we can learn to be civil and open-minded. His new book is "The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion."
