Description

Best selling author Dr. Jonathan Haidt joins us to discuss the psychology of America’s reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic and how to build resilience and thrive in this volatile, uncertain world. Along the way we explore the rise of micro aggression and “safetyism” on campuses, the moral roots of conservatives and liberals, the increasingly toxic polarization on social media and college campuses, and the implications for our democracy.

Dr. Haidt is a professor of social psychology at NYU-Stern and author of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion and co-author of The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas are Setting Up a Generation for Failure. He is also the co-founder of HeterodoxAcademy.org, a collaboration among nearly 2500 professors who are working to increase viewpoint diversity and freedom of inquiry in universities.
