Jeremy speaks with Alexandra Hudson about how to restore civility during times of hostility.
This week on Givers, Doers, & Thinkers, Jeremy speaks with Alexandra Hudson about how cultivating the misunderstood virtue of civility can help us overcome our individual anxieties and social pathologies.
Alexandra Hudson lives in Indianapolis, where she is an adjunct professor at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. She was a Novak Journalism Fellow and the creator and developer of a TV series called Storytelling and the Human Condition. She has contributed to the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Politico, and other publications. Most recently, Alexandra is the author of a new book titled The Soul of Civility: Timeless Principles to Heal Society and Ourselves.
What’s the difference between civility and politeness? How do we cultivate healing in our society? Jeremy and Alexandra discuss what defines civility and the timeless set of principles that can heal our society. They further expand on the need for civility and its impact on protest, societal change, social media, education, and philanthropy. And, most importantly, how Larry David fits into it all.
