Invitation to facebook group: Cross-Party Political Philosophy Discussion Group

Over the next few weeks we will read and discuss the book titled The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt. It is available at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle editions and at other booksellers. http://www.amazon.com/The-Righteous-Mind-Politics-Religion/dp/0307455777
A summary of the first chapter will be posted in two weeks for discussion. Please volunteer to a post chapter summary in the future.

Book summary: “As America descends deeper into polarization and paralysis, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has done the seemingly impossible—challenged conventional thinking about morality, politics, and religion in a way that speaks to everyone on the political spectrum. Drawing on his twenty five years of groundbreaking research on moral psychology, he shows how moral judgments arise not from reason but from gut feelings. He shows why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians have such different intuitions about right and wrong, and he shows why each side is actually right about many of its central concerns. In this subtle yet accessible book, Haidt gives you the key to understanding the miracle of human cooperation, as well as the curse of our eternal divisions and conflicts. If you’re ready to trade in anger for understanding, read The Righteous Mind.”
Haite is a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business and has a Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.

Sarychev Volcano Eruption from the International Space Station 

A fortuitous orbit of the International Space Station allowed the astronauts this striking view of Sarychev Volcano (Kuril Islands, northeast of Japan) in an early stage of eruption on June 12, 2009.
