On 10 December I talked with authors who describe two radically different worldviews.
I talked first with Bob Altemeyer, Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Manitoba about his book The Authoritarians, which you can read for free online or order in hard copy for a nominal price. There is a Google Group dedicated to ongoing discussion of the book and its ideas.
I then talked with Lewis Hyde about his book The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property, which Vintage Books has just released in a 25th Anniversary Edition, with a new preface and afterword and with the subtitle changed to Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World. I liked the book even more than when I first read it a dozen years ago but wish Hyde had kept the title intact.
