Was listening to Jonathan Haidt on on an episode of Joe Rogan’s podcast from awhile back. So much good conversation and ideas there, especially with regards to the current state of education and social media’s effects on kids. One thing that came out of that as well was Johnathan’s mention of this book – really a short essay, a new version of the second chapter of John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty that pertains to arguments regarding free speech. Edited to be more relevant to today and easier to read, along with illustrations – a sort of ‘graphic novel’ treatment to an essay if you will. Available as a free PDF download, or paid Kindle and printed versions.
Download and purchase information, brief bios of Haidt and co-editor Richard Reeves and Illustrator Dave Cicirelli, as well as info on the Heterodox Academy all available at the Heterodox website.
A great read – and the illustrations are a fantastic addition as well.
