Skeptics, Delusions, Feminism, and Anger: An Interview with Carol Tavris

Primary tabs

Sunday, May 3, 2015 - 5:00pm

Carol Tavris, our very special spring speaker in the Thomas Jefferson Lecture Series, will meet with Jeff Center members and friends for a discussion of her work and ideas. Our Book Group Coordinator, Sandra Coyner, will moderate and stimulate discussion with questions related to Jeff Center themes, but YOU can ask your own questions and participate in discussion and dialogue.
See the announcement for the lecture on May 5 for further details about what Dr. Tavris will present about “Self-Justifying Delusions.” The Salon will not duplicate the lecture, but should make it even more meaningful. That event is advertised to the general public and all are welcome; this Salon is designed for Jeff Center members and friends.
The salon will bring forth themes and issues related to Carol Tavris’s books, especially
* “Mistakes Were Made, but Not by Me” 2007
* “The Mismeasure of Woman: Why Women are Not the Better Sex, the Inferior Sex, or the Opposite Sex” 1992
* “Anger, The Misunderstood Emotion” rev. 1989
* “The Longest War: Sex Differences in Perspective” 1984
Carol Tavris is a social psychologist, feminist, and contributor to “Skeptic” magazine, honored with an award from The Independent Investigations Group in 2010.
