According to psychologist Kirk Schneider, corporate swindlers, stubborn ideologues, and school gunmen all have one thing in common. He calls it "the polarized mind" -- when someone believes their point of view is right to the exclusion of all others. He says we see this with bigots, bullies, and even addicts -- and that its symptoms are hidden until something terrible happens. Dr. Schneider joins us to talk about his new book, "The Polarized Mind."

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Kirk Schneider, adjunct faculty at Saybrook University; vice president of the Existential-Humanistic Institute; and author of "The Polarized Mind: Why It's Killing Us and What We Can Do About It"
