Overcoming Contempt: A Historical Perspective with Professor Dale Moler

This month we will host a webinar that explores the Northwood Omniquest book Love Your Enemies by Arthur Brooks. We invite you to purchase the book and read it before you join Professor Dale Moler's Discussion on September 23.

This presentation will discuss two conflict-laden eras in American history - the 1860s and the 1960s - and the way open and honest discourse allowed some Americans to overcome their contempt for one another to solve important problems confronting them during these periods. Using examples from the past, we will explore the importance of having sympathy and compassion for those with whom you disagree, something that enriches our lives in the modern world and something that played an important role in shaping America's past. The presentation will use themes from Northwood's Omniquest book Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt, by Arthur C. Brooks, as an organizing structure, extending those themes to think about the similarities and differences between ourselves and Americans living in the past.
