16-01-2019 12:00:00 16-01-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York The Coddling of the American Mind | 7:00 PM Civil discourse is in decline, with potentially dire results for American democracy. On college campuses across America, visiting speakers are disinvited, or even shouted down, while professors, students, and administrators are afraid to talk openly, for fear that someone will take offense. Political discussion on social media and television has devolved into a wave of hyper-partisan noise. A generation of overprotective parents are reluctant to let their children play outside without supervision. How did we get here? And how can we change the way that we engage with one another? Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt's The Coddling of the American Mind sounds the depths of this generational crisis. Join us for a lively discussion with the authors, columnist Lenore Skenazy, and #1 New York Times bestseller Malcolm Gladwell on how we as citizens can engage with one another across the political spectrum. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=334764 92Y 92Y
