It is another social science draft that gives another way to look at how we think, how our thinking has evolved, and how we interact with each other. Even in attempts at balance, I refuse to listen to Rush Limbaugh or watch Faux News. Haidt's thesis is controversial :- that Western liberals e. Books are often not time-efficient enough for me anymore. Jonny - if we seek only to reinforce our belief, how come many of us have stopped believing in things we once did?
