Book Discussion: The Righteous Mind

August 21 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 Jonathan Haidt’s New York Times best-seller The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics & Religion. Laura Berlind of The Sycamore Institute and journalist Natasha Senjanovic (formerly of Nashville Public Radio) 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 follow-up event on September 25: a discussion of Haidt’s book “The Coddling of the American Mind.”
