Do yourself a favor and invest some time to watch this conversation between psychologists Dr. Jordan Peterson and Dr. Jonathan Haidt.

Nov 6, 2017: Discussion with Dr. Jonathan Haidt NYU
Jordan Peterson wrote:I recently traveled to New York University to talk with Dr. Jonathan Haidt about, among other things, disgust, purity, fear and belief; the perilous state of the modern university; and his work with Heterodox Academy (https://heterodoxacademy.org/) an organization designed to draw attention to the lack of diversity of political belief in the humanities and the social sciences.

Dr. Haid is Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University's Stern School of Business and a social psychologist. He studies the psychology of morality and the moral emotions. He has been described as a top global thinker by both Foreign Policy and Prospect magazines. Dr. Haidt is the author of three books:

The newest is The Coddling of the American Mind: How Bad Ideas and Good Intentions are Setting up a Generation for Failure
The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion
The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom
His writings on diversity viewpoint for the Heterodox Academy are at
