Wrath: Moral Grandstanding and Self-Righteous Anger
Dr. Justin Tosi – Faculty Fellow, Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics, Georgetown University
7pm, April 26, 2018
Halifax Central Library
In this talk we ask why everyone seems so angry. Dr. Justin Tosi will help us understand the rise of intolerance, the disappearance of the middle ground in social and political dialogue, moral grandstanding and the emergence of the outrage industry on-line and in the media.
