Are you tired of seeing one political side shouting over another? Do you struggle to understand why people see some things as morally fine, but you think they're abhorrent? If so, you need to delve into The Social Psychology of the Moral and Political Mind.

In this course, you will:

- Learn about how people make moral decisions based on automatic gut reactions, rather than reason and logic

- Understand the foundations of human morality, personality, and motivated decision-making

- Hear about the psychological evidence behind 'liberals' and 'conservatives' having different psychological make-ups

- Apply the evidence to current political debates


This course gives you what you need to know to understand the social psychology of the culture wars - fast. You will be learning all of this from an expert in this field. I am a university-based psychology lecturer, a practising research psychologist, and have published academic papers in the area of social psychology.


I hope you enjoy the course, and will be happy to answer an questions you have about the content. 

Welcome aboard!

Stringent and to the point. Very good as a primer to give you an orientation on the subject - that is brief enough to be digested in a short time, but substantial enough to begin building an understanding. Just right if you want to begin to deepen this subject.

The instructor did a terrific job of taking research brilliant by Jonathan Haidt and making it accessible and so clear. Excellent work! great course! Trenchant and timely ideas/recommendations! Much gratitude!

The only thing I would add would be more in-depth analysis of the recent campaigns of Brexit and Trumpism as well as an analysis of far leftist movements
