Cognitive Politics

Progressive Communications meet Cognitive Science

Progressive Communications meet Cognitive Science

American politics is dividing into red and blue, but not based on income or any simple self-interest. Cognitive scientists are learning ever more about what divides us -- discovering psychological makeups that lead to different politics and growing divisions. Cognitive Politics helps advocates of compassionate and hopeful politics to listen and to be heard across that divide.

Initial publication February 10, 2017. Grand launch March 10. A non-Kindle ebook version will be completed soon after – sign up for the newsletter if you'd like to know when it's ready. Cognitive Politics includes the book, a growing blog, and efforts to develop messaging and trainings that let us reach out to decent people with different views. Get on the newsletter and get involved!
