“When it comes to moral judgments, we think we are scientists discovering the truth, but actually we are lawyers arguing for positions we arrived at by other means.” The surprising psychology behind morality is at the heart of social psychologist Jonathan Haidt’s research. He explains “liberal” and “conservative” not narrowly or necessarily as political affiliations, but as personality types — ways of moving through the world. His self-described “conservative-hating, religion-hating, secular liberal instincts” have been challenged by his own studies. Listen now via the link in our bio. [Photo by Dzung Viet Le / Flickr]

With his book Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman emerged as one of the most intriguing voices on the complexity of human thought and behavior. He is a psychologist who won the Nobel Prize in economics for helping to create the field of Behavioral Economics. He is a self-described “constant worrier.” And it’s fun, helpful, and more than a little unnerving to apply his insights into why we think and act the way we do in this moment of social and political tumult. A new episode, available for listening at onbeing.org (link in our bio), or wherever you get your podcasts.

“I don’t even have words for how crazy and difficult these days are. Guns and floods and death, and then life.

Tonight begins the holiday of Sukkoth. It lasts for seven days. We build a home outside our home, to celebrate shelter while we wander, and harvest, and we eat our meals together. We continue to celebrate that there is harvest, and that we each do what we can to make a home.

A home is people, people we love. One of the people I love the most is a neighbor named Delores. I have written many poems for Delores.

Delores one

of my favorite people ever

she owned

a bar in Harlem cleaned houses

raised children many friends lives

a life wherever she is lives

a mobile home in upstate New York

invites us all in Delores

doesn’t mind her missing body parts

ok about aging and various diseases she

enjoys her doctors some good looking

Delores looked beautiful at dinner

new silver shoes she said sometimes

I don’t feel all that good

but then

I wake up to birds” ~Esther Cohen [Photo by Matthew Septimus]
