In March, under the aegis of the Veritas Forum, he debated with Tim Keller on how we can have a properly pluralistic society in which all points of view are respected. It is online to watch. Haidt is an atheist who recognises the benefits which faith has brought about in the evolution of civilised society (click here for a review of his landmark book The Righteous Mind ). During the debate however, he confessed that there are a number of subjects that he cannot discuss openly, for fear of losing his job.
