Jonathan Haidt’s Wonderful World of Morals

I discovered social psychologist Jonathan Haidt’s work while reading Sarah Perry’s Every Cradle Is A Grave.  She is a big fan of his and references his work in her own.  So just today I discovered Jonathan Haidt runs a wonderful little website called YourMorals.org where you can take numerous psychological surveys to determine your personal stance on various moral issues.  Absolutely fascinating stuff and an ideal starting point to learn about moral psychology and philosophical ethics in an interactive format.  He also runs a companion site, Moralfoundations.org, explaining his Moral Foundations Theory in depth.  The survey questionnaires are very illuminating educational tools that could be of real use to an antinatalist seeking to to sharpen their ethical and moral arguments.  More on this to come!
