The Coddling of the American Mind

by Greg Lukianoff

The Coddling of the American Mind

Greg Lukianoff

Overview

For about a decade, untruths about intellectual danger, emotional reasoning, and dichotomous thinking have permeated the collective consciousness of the U.S. population. Though not explicitly taught, these propositions have taken root in households, high schools, college campuses, and national politics. These untruths are detrimental to free inquiry, evidence-based arguments, and ultimately democracy.

Jonathan Haidt is an author, social psychologist, and the Professor of Ethical Leadership at NYU Stern School of Business. Greg Lukianoff is the President of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).

In The Coddling of the American Mind, Haidt and Lukianoff argue that adults and institutions in the U.S. propagate three 'great untruths.' These untruths directly contradict ancient wisdom and modern psychological research while harming the individuals who embrace them.

Favorite Quote

"College is quite possibly the best environment on earth in which to come face-to-face with people and ideas that are potentially offensive... It is the ultimate mental gymnasium, full of advanced equipment, skilled trainers, and therapists standing by."

Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt
