Author Philip Slater joins us to discuss his book The Chrysalis Effect.

The changes that have taken place in the last fifty years – the feminist movement, minority movements, the spread of democracy, the global economy, the revolutions in physics and biology, the peace movement, the sexual revolution – are all part of this cultural transformation. Contrary to popular opinion, the polarization this metamorphosis engenders is not a struggle between Left and Right, or between the West and Islam, but one taking place within the Left, within the Right, within the West, within Islam, within every individual and every institution.

This will be a jumping off point for a broad discussion of what it is like living through a period of turbulence, and how to deal with it.
