Dr. Charles Strozier is a Professor of History and the founding Director of the Center on Terrorism at John Jay College at City University of New York, a trainer and supervising analyst at the TRISP foundation in New York, and a practicing psychoanalyst in New York City.
He is the author of numerous books including two psychological studies of Abraham Lincoln, “Until The Fires Stopped Burning” and a book based on in-depth interviews with World Trade Center disaster survivors, “Apocalypse: On the Psychology of Fundamentalism in America”, and “The Fundamentalist Mindset: Psychological Perspectives on Religion, Violence, and History”.
In today’s episode we take an experimental leap into the realm of social and political psychology by exploring the topic of fundamentalist thinking from both a religious and secular perspective, and why each and every one of us have the potential to fall prey to it.
