Study Up For 'Think': Has Humanism Heightened Our Expectations?
Individuality has had positive connotations in mainstream American culture since the ‘60s . But how has a focus on self-expression affected our hopes for the future? Author and social scientist Jessica Grogan talks with Think host Krys Boyd today at noon about her book Encountering America: Humanistic Psychology, Sixties Culture, and the Shaping of the Modern Self.
Marriage as a changing institution is a major focus of humanist psychologists. In “A Happy-ish Marriage” for Psychology Today, Grogan weighs the hopefulness produced by humanist ideology with the towering expectations for perfect partnerships it can produce. What other aspects of our culture are experiencing this duality of change?
Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday, on KERA 90.1 or stream the show at kera.org.
