by Barbel Wardetzki

Barbel Wardetzki, one of the most influential psychologists in Germany, says that the difference between them depends on “self-dignity” that one loves oneself. She suggests healing ways to respect oneself when falling into despair.

 

 

The Righteous Mind

by Jonathan Haidt

Reviewing on his 25 years of research on moral psychology, the author shows how moral judgments arise not from reasons but from good feelings. He shows why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians have such different perception about right and wrong. Haidt gives you the key to understanding the miracle of human cooperation, as well as the curse of our eternal divisions and conflicts.
