Human nature the subject of discussion group

Do you ever wonder why it seems difficult for people to “just get along” whether it is in religion, international relations or politics?  We invite you to join us commencing on Monday, Jan. 20, when Joseph Konen will lead our local Bay Village CWRU group in an exploration of Jonathan Haidt’s book "The Righteous Mind."  

This splendidly written, sophisticated and stimulating book explores how we humans are both cooperative and competitive. Haidt’s research leads him to believe that “human nature is not just intrinsically moral, it's also intrinsically moralistic, critical and judgmental.”

We look forward to meeting new people and the insights they bring. These classes are sponsored by Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University. The eight-week session will be held Mondays from 10 to 11:30 a.m. beginning Jan. 20 at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church which is located on the southwest corner of the intersection of Wolf and Bradley roads in Bay Village.

Advance registration together with payment of the course fee of $75 is required and must be received prior to the start of class.
