This article is a seed. You can help Issuepedia by watering it.

Jon Haidt was a speaker at the Beyond Belief: Enlightenment 2.0 conference in 2007.

Theories

Haidt and others have proposed that there are 5 "innate psychological systems form the foundation of intuitive ethics", and that one's political affiliation (conservative vs. liberal) is largely determined by one's awareness (or unawareness) of three of those systems. The systems are Harm/Care, Fairness/Reciprocity, Ingroup/Loyalty, Authority/Respect, and Purity/Sanctity; liberals generally ignore all but the first two, while conservatives pay attention to all 5. (see human nature)
