Kirk Schneider - The Polarized Mind


What is a polarized mind? It is a mind stricken with one absolutist point of view, to the utter exclusion, even demonization, of all others. The polarized mind can appear as bigotry, bullying, tyranny, vengefulness, and arrogance. It is found in fields as diverse as governance, religion, and science, often hidden in plain sight until rearing its ugly head in the morning headlines. 

In his latest book, The Polarized Mind: Why It’s Killing Us and What We Can Do About It ($21.95), Dr. Kirk Schneider explores why and how estranged killers, corporate swindlers, bullheaded ideologues, and notorious leaders and their followers have become repeatedly polarized throughout history, why it’s problematic – even dangerous, and how we can begin to understand and undo it.

Kirk J. Schneider, Ph.D., is a leading spokesperson for contemporary existential-humanistic psychology. Dr. Schneider is the recent past editor of the Journal of Humanistic Psychology , vice-president of the Existential-Humanistic Institute (EHI), and adjunct faculty at Saybrook University, Teachers College, Columbia University, and the California Institute of Integral Studies.
