Moral Reasoning

15

“If you think that moral reasoning is something we do to figure out the truth, you’ll be constantly frustrated by how foolish, biased and illogical people become when they disagree with you. But, if you think about moral reasoning as a skill that we humans evolved to further our social agendas, to justify our own actions and to defend the team we belong to, then things will make a lot more sense.”

– Jonathan Haidt
