Join us online this Friday, August 14th, for an uplifting conversation, Hope and Healing Amidst Deep Division, with well-known authors Jonathan Haidt and Pete Wehner, presented by The Trinity Forum. The discussion will focus on our country’s current deep cultural and political divide and ways to bridge it. This free live event will take place at 1:30 pm and last approximately one hour. Registration to join the event is here.
Dr. Jonathan Haidt is well-known to readers of the Praxis Circle blog. We devoted an entire week last December to Dr. Haidt with our posts Good Evil, Part I of III, Earned Success, Part II of III, and Well-Intended Failure, Part III of III. He is currently the Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership at NYU’s Stern School of Business, and the author of several books, most notably The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion. We think The Righteous Mind is one of the best books out there about worldview from a political perspective. It’s a must-read for those interested in worldviews.
Pete Wehner is a Senior Fellow at The Trinity Forum as well as Vice President and Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, both in Washington, D.C. Mr. Wehner writes for a number of publications, primarily the New York Times and The Atlantic. A prolific author, his most recent work is The Death of Politics: How to Heal Our Frayed Republic After Trump (2019). Mr. Wehner is also the Pamela and Jack Egan Visiting Professor at the Sanford School of Public Policy and the School of Arts and Sciences at Duke University. Additionally, he has served in three different presidents’ administrations.
This event should be of interest to everyone who is concerned about our current state of affairs and who hope to determine positive ways forward. Dr. Haidt and Mr. Wehner are ideally suited for the task and we look forward to it. We hope you will join us!
