I’ve begun reading The Coddling of the American Mind by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt. Lots of quotes to follow in the coming days. This book is needed reading.
First… the three great UNtruths:
- The Untruth of Fragility: What doesn’t kill you makes you weaker.
- The Untruth of Emotional Reasoning: Always trust your feelings.
- The Untruth of Us vs. Them: Life is a battle between good people and evil people.
These are the three dilemmas in our current culture and that is what will occupy this book… and this blog… for a bit of time.
