How Can You Think That?

A Political Book Club

Do you find yourself upset by the level of political dysfunction and polarization of opinions?  There must be a better way of having discussions about politics than what is seen on the internet or television or hear in shouting matches between people who disagree with each other.

Join a political book club with those interested in bridging political divides and having good conversations about why conservatives and liberals often find it hard to meet on common ground.

The first book to be discussed will be “The Righteous Mind” by Jonathan Haidt.  Haidt is a social psychologist who studies the mindsets that people bring to thinking about values and morality and why the views of others can seem so incomprehensible.

This will be a discussion group, hopefully involving people from a variety of backgrounds and ways of thinking.

Please come to the first session having read “The Righteous Mind”.

When: 4th Tuesday of the month.
Time: 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Dates: Jan 23, Feb 27, Mar 27, Apr 24, May 22, June 26.
Where: cSpace , Room 310, 1721-29 Ave. SW

Julie Sedivy, a Calgary-based writer & language scientist currently is an adjunct associate professor at the University of Calgary.  Julie has developed the structure for this program  & will provide guidance.
