Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt Righteous Mind, Paperback (May 2013)

Why can it sometimes feel as though half the population is living in a moral universe? Why do ideas such as 'fairness' and 'freedom' mean such different things to different people? Why is it so hard to see things from another viewpoint? Why do we come to blows over politics and religion? This book answers these questions about human relationships.

Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt Happiness Hypothesis, Paperback (October 2006)

Drawing on the inspiration of both philosophy and science, this book exposes traditional wisdom to the scrutiny of modern science, delivering many insights. It tells that virtue is often not its own reward, why extroverts really are happier than introverts, and why conscious thought is not as important as we might like to think.
