One thought on “Transcripts of Heterodox Academy’s Open Mind Conference

  1. This is really good stuff, thanks for sharing! On another completely open-ended, non-confrontational note, is there any active movement afoot to convert Trumpism into a cogent system of thought? I ask because I know there were several attempts to do this previously, but to my knowledge, they have all shut down. Presently, and please correct me if I am wrong, there is no group that is assembling various policies and ideas into a broader framework.

    Thanks again!

I Support Viewpoint Diversity

www.heterodoxacademy.org

A politically diverse group of social scientists, natural scientists, humanists, and other scholars who want to improve our academic disciplines and universities. We share a concern about a growing problem: the loss or lack of “viewpoint diversity.” When nearly everyone in a field shares the same political orientation, certain ideas become orthodoxy, dissent is discouraged, and errors can go unchallenged.

An Interpretation of Jonathan Haidt’s Moral Foundations Theory

This sidebar lists a series of posts which together make up an essay relating Moral Foundations Theory to today's politics, and even a little history, as viewed through The Independent Whig's six-foundation moral lens.
