The Five Moral Foundations
In his book “The Righteous Mind”, Jonathan Haidt describes these five foundations of morality:
- Care – Protect others from harm,
- Fairness – exchanges are reciprocal and proportional, don't cheat,
- Loyalty – support our team and our tribe,
- Authority – respect those above you in the hierarchy,
- Sanctity – noble things are good, disgusting things are bad.
