Book Talk: In Defense of Troublemakers
Reading - Nonfiction | October 10 | 4-5:30 p.m. | Haviland Hall, 227 (Social Research Library)
Author Charlan Nemeth, Professor of Psychology (UC Berkeley), will discuss her book In Defense of Troublemakers: The Power of Dissent in Life and Business (Basic Books, 2018). She will explain why dissent should be cherished, not feared, because it leads to more creative and better decision-making. Lone objectors from Twelve Angry Men to Edward Snowden force people to question their assumptions and bring groups far closer to truth.
