Book Discussion: The Coddling of the American Mind

September 25 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Americans have always engaged in hearty disagreement over politics, policy, society, and faith. It’s part of what makes us American. Today, however, there’s something different about our growing anxiety, partisan discord, and disgust for opposing viewpoints.

Why do we (and others) think and feel the way we do? And how can we empower our leaders (and ourselves) to find a healthier approach to public discourse?

Register below to explore these challenges with people who may think differently as we discuss New York Times best-selling book The Coddling of the American Mind by Jonathan Haidt. Brian Straessle of The Sycamore Institute and Kenyatta Lovett with the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development will co-facilitate this conversation hosted by Sycamore and Lipscomb University’s College of Leadership and Public Service.

If you use Amazon Smile to buy this book, a small percentage of the sale will be donated to Sycamore.

Plus, don’t miss our prevous event on August 21: a discussion of Haidt’s book “The Righteous Mind.”
