Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership, New York University Stern School of Business
Jonathan Haidt is a social psychologist at the NYU Stern School of Business. His research examines the intuitive foundations of morality, politics, and religion. He is currently applying his research to address questions such as why people on the left and right see capitalism, business, and economics so differently and how companies can structure and run themselves to be resistant to ethical failures. Haidt is the author of The Happiness Hypothesis and The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion. He was named a top 100 global thinker by Foreign Policy magazine and one of 65 World Thinkers by Prospect Magazine.
