What if Liberals and Conservatives Aren’t so Different?

Location: Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor)

Spark Talk
Bridging Divides

Liberals and conservatives often disagree, but not because they have different moral minds.  Pop psychology claims that the “roots of morality” differ across politics, but new scientific discoveries point to a more hopeful truth: liberals and conservatives share the same moral cognition. Join this talk to learn more about these findings and their potential for understanding—and bridging—real-world divides.
