Descriere

The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure by Greg Lukianoff: Conversation Starters


Campuses are now troubled because of three terrible ideas: 1) What doesn't kill you makes you weaker; 2)Always trust your feelings; and 3) Life is a battle between good people and evil people. These ideas are woven into the way the youth are raised through childhood and how they are educated. This book will help us understand why there is rising intolerance in society today. It can help us find solutions with its deeply informed insights and scientific studies that prove important points. It is a book that will enable Americans to be more resilient and to nurture a resilient democracy.
The Coddling of the American Mind is in the bestseller list of the New York Times and in Amazon’s Education category. The New York Times Book Review praises it for its “comprehensive analysis.”

Introducing The Coddling of the American Mind

T

he Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure is a book written by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt. The book points out the things that are going wrong in campuses today, particularly the high anxiety and depression rates among students and how this coincides with the concern among speakers and professors who do not want to speak honestly for fear of being punished. Lukianoff and Haidt are experts on the First Amendment and social psychology respectively. They explain that campuses are now troubled because of three terrible ideas that affect the youth. The authors cite the ideas as: 1) What doesn't kill you makes you weaker; 2)Always trust your feelings; and 3) Life is a battle between good people and evil people. These ideas are woven into the way the youth are raised through childhood and how they are educated. But unknown to parents and to their college-age children, these ideas, called the Great Untruths by the authors, are in contradiction to the beliefs of ancient and wise cultures on how to bring up the young. The Great Untruths mess up with the psychological well-being of the youth
