Not until recently, the scholarship studying areas of morality was highly, if not exclusively, dominated by philosophy; that is ethics and political philosophy. Haidt, coming from an educational background as a social psychologist, has made the attempt to discuss about morality in a less "metaphysical" manner--that is to say philosophy--and having it rather grounded on a more concrete and empirical basis by supporting it with solid statistics data. Rather than contriving to explain what morality is, Haidt embarked on the task aiming to make readers understand the perceived moral landscape in the American (but conceptually not exclusively) society, and how it is so.
