Our Culture of Distrust: How to Bridge the Left/Right & Religious/Secular Divides
We live in a time when polarization and distrust are hindering us from relationship and moving forward together. In our interconnected world, it's more important than ever figure out how people who hold important and conflicting views can engage well with respect and rigor. We will hear from two distinguished scholars who will draw from their expertise and their differing worldviews to explore how we can survive and even thrive amidst deep difference.
Jonathan Haidt - NYU Professor of Moral Psychology - Author of Coddling of the American Mind
John Inazu - Washington University Professor of Law & Religion - Author of Confident Pluralism
Christine Emba- The Washington Post
We will hear from our speakers then have a time to talk with each other in table discussions then have a time of Q&A.
