"Get the Summary of Jonathan Haidt and Greg Lukianoff's The Coddling of the American Mind in 20 minutes. Please note: This is a summary & not the original book. Original book introduction: First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt show how the new problems on campus have their origins in three terrible ideas that have become increasingly woven into American childhood and education: what doesn't kill you makes you weaker; always trust your feelings; and life is a battle between good people and evil people. These three Great Untruths are incompatible with basic psychological principles, as well as ancient wisdom from many cultures. They interfere with healthy development. Anyone who embraces these untruths-and the resulting culture of safetyism-is less likely to become an autonomous adult able to navigate the bumpy road of life."-- Provided by Freading.
