あらすじ・解説

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Coddling of the America Mind by Jonathan Haidt and Greg Lukianoff, read by Jonathan Haidt.

What doesn't kill you makes you weaker.
Always trust your feelings.
Life is a battle between good people and evil people.

These three Great Untruths contradict basic psychological principles about well-being as well as ancient wisdom from many cultures. And yet they have become increasingly woven into education, culminating in a stifling culture of 'safetyism' that began on American college campuses and is spreading throughout academic institutions in the English-speaking world. 

In this book, free speech campaigner Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt investigate six trends that caused the spread of these untruths, from the decline of unsupervised play to the corporatisation of universities and the rise of new ideas about identity and justice. 

Lukianoff and Haidt argue that well-intended but misguided attempts to protect young people can hamper their development, with devastating consequences for them, for the educational system and for democracy itself.

Evidence free right winger blame ruins the theory

While I highly rate this author, at the time of writing he was still a leftist in the process of being mugged by reality.
He can recognise the causes of the problem but still clings desperately to the idea that leftist ideas are just being used for bad purposes rather than simply being the poison themselves. I think the author knows that all the relevant mechanisms in his theory are all tactics of the left but in order to hedge against the cancellation he knows this would invoke he regularly throws in some blame to the mythical 'rising right-wing' that is somehow everywhere without actually ever being anywhere. This is especially laughable because we are talking about university campuses.
Oh and the book even has some orange man bad with the author pushing the 'very fine people' lie because TDS sells or something.
The author's claim that the left and right have equally contributed to the decline of tolerance and the rise censorship has not aged well at all.
The irony that the author himself is now denounced as right wing by those of his former fellow travellers for the great crime of pointing out how they were contributing to the problem.

But, despite all that, this book does a reasonable job of explaining the rise of safetyism and how it causes the insanity and divisions gripping America.

Didappointing

While interesting from a psychological perspective the style is too apologetic, as if the authors are codling the readers. This book will be forgotten in history.

Deeply Important & Highly Engaging

A master class in reasoning and responsible, compassionate analysis. Haidt and Lulianoff don't attack modern safetyism / PC culture, as many others have, rather they seek to explain its origins, critique its problems and suggestion multiple ways forward.

A great read for anyone not already a paid up SJW and hence potentially impervious to the contents.

As someone not understanding where all this safe spaces, micro aggressions and etc was coming from, this book is a definite eye opener.

An Important book marred by false "balance"

This is a very important book, describing in clear terms how the last 40 years of over protective parenting combined with social media to create a toxic brew that has led to Stepford students conducting witch hunts, destroying academic integrity and making themselves (and everybody else) miserable in the process.
The book explicitly outlines 3 untruths core to the problem, whatever doesn't kill you makes you weaker, always trust your feelings and the world is divided into good and evil people.
The problem is that the authors political bias (they are on the left) stop them from seeing this as it is, a predominantly left wing phenomena and they engage in ever more desperate mental gymnastics to suggest that this problem afflicts both sides of the political divide equally. This isn't to say that the right doesn't have its problems but this isn't one of them. It really comes down to the old adage that the right thinks the left are wrong but the left thinks the right are evil. This distinction means that, for those on the left, one of the untruths is always a given, unfortunately, helicopter parenting and social media to put the other 2 in place to take us to where we are now..

Tries to put equal blame on left and right

Sorry but you cannot put equal blame on left and right for the situation in the US (and other) education systems when the educational establishment is almost 100% left wing. Hairy asks "Where did students learn to think this way?" Well Jonathan if you can't work that one out I fear for you, it certainly wasn't Donald Trump (who you seem to want to draw into every explanation)

An absolutely essential book.

A must read for everyone interested in the world, the possible future and the current political situation.

Though focusing on education and the university (the forge for future citizens and politicians) this book highlights some of the bad ideas and pitfalls that undermine its purpose and ill-serve its students and society at large there-after. This book is packed with useful studies, insights and analysis. Clearly written, one feels every student and teacher should read this. The fundamentals of a well functioning society are debated here, strand by strand, in one of the clearest and most succinct books i've ever read on the subject (one can see the authors pedagogic roots - and the book is all the better for it!) - essential reading!

Get ready to make notes, as the ideas are insightful, beautifully and fluidly written (and too many are worth noting down).

Could have been a quarter of the length

The narration is okay, however the problem is the content. Put simply, it's boring - same point fleshed out time and time again. Feels like the author didn't have more to offer but felt that they should write a longer book, which is a shame because the basic premise is good. I would have liked to see a more difference between the chapters and some more creativity with the topic.

Johnathan Haidt is a great writer and a wonderful narrator.
It’s the best audio book I’ve experienced. If the subject matter interests you then this book will not disappoint.

truly enlightening & so relevant

A counter argument to the predelection for unthinking partisanship, this book clearly sets out the problems of the current education system and fashions in parenting which result in intellectual fragility and safetyism. There have also been effective revolutions on campuses across the US, and the scourge of cancel culture, which the authors suggest could undermine the whole point of universities which should be the search for Truth.
Unusually for an academic text there are very practical chapters of suggestions for nurturing good mental health (CBT), establishing anti-fragility in young children, and, for college leaders, managing attempts to prevent speakers or unpopular viewpoints being expressed on campus.
It is a very humane and patient and calm book. And very clearly set out. And very honest. The authors state their political viewpoints as a way of establishing that they are talking in good faith.
Altogether very enlightening, accessible and scholarly. I loved it and will be reading The Righteous Mind next.

A precursor to the sheer madness of 2020!

Haidt's exploration of the infantilisation of the American mindset powerfully articulated what I always knew to be true..a life without risks is no life at all.

The cure for our youth and political crises

This book is a brilliant look at the dangers of overprotective parenting and the slow creep of safetyism in institutions such as universities and schools. Highly recommend, especially for parents or those who work with young people, students, and people who work on schools or universities.

This is a brilliant book. In a well reasoned and compassionate manner, the authors show how a variety of factors have combined to give rise to the madness that is occurring on American campuses. It’s a warning for Australia as the forces of division rise

this very well written and presented book answered a lot of questions regarding what is happening in our society today, particularly among young people. this book should be widely read. the authors present a clear case about how 3 untruths are shaping the current generation and what can be done about it. highly recommended for parents and educators in particular.

This is a brilliant and honest deconstruction of the culture of safetyism, hysteria and anti-intellectualism gripping the western world and leading us astray. Fantastic work.

very good informative book

some really eye opening facts and points that everyone should hear, especially young people and parents.

well read and balanced arguments.

some points get repeated but the delivery is understandable and facts back up why these should be repeated.

Makes CBT sound like a cult

The first half of this book was quite a bland rehashing of on campus events that occurred over the last decade or so. The second half was much more interesting as the author ventured into their own realm of expertise and gave supplemental information and explanations to his arguments. However the author lacks integrity when explaining the "far right" groups and their responses to campus protests. They take the media by its word that these groups were actually far right. The author explained him and his colleague would never vote Republican and are devout democrats, which is fine, but shows the author has a strong bias against the other side which may be the reason why they're so keen to accept the narrative against the right wing. The book should've had the first half condensed into at least half the length and perhaps remove a lot of the praise for CBT, as it went from "okay cool idea" to "I think this might be a cult". I get they believe in their product, but tone it down or at least rename the book to "The coddling of the American mind: and how cbt will save the world". I hope the authors research more into the right wing rather than passing their reaction off as aggressive rather than defensive. Either way, it was an okay book and had some good information, but could be shortened and social aspects researched further.

Such a great book. Be careful not to react to soon to the books content. You will find it very interesting and hard to reach by the end.
