  • Behaviour change
  • Social justice

Watch Jonathan Haidt, social psychologist, in our latest RSA Spotlight - the edits which take you straight to the heart of the event!

What we believe influences what we perceive far more than we would like to admit to. Renowned social psychologist Jonathan Haidt uses an optical illusion to demonstrate how our brains are influenced, and how most of us stick unswervingly to one of two persuasive stories about capitalism. He believes we must push ourselves beyond these entrenched narratives and develop a ‘third story’ – one that incorporates some of the objective truths of both, and abandons the gut-level assumptions on either side.
