Episode 13: Expert Opinion - Jonathan Haidt Clear and Present Danger - A history of free speech

    • History

In this episode, we do a bit of time travel and leave the 17th century for a discussion of free speech on American college and university campuses today.
Our guest is New York University professor Jonathan Haidt, who is a author “The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure,”.
We do also try to draw parallels with older controversies in order to determine whether the psychological mechanisms at play are similar.
