A Student’s Guide to Right, Left and Truth

This book is an augmented adaptation of the author’s 2018 book Understanding Left and Right (Nova). It further reinforces the message that sustained truth-seeking leads people toward the political center. Each chapter offers divide-bridging discussions of issues such as regulation, taxation, corporate-strategy and personal identity, along with the very ideas of knowledge, truth and goodness. Selected chapters from either work would fit easily into just about every college level course across the spectrum of business studies, social sciences and humanities, almost certainly provoking lively comments. This might seem like an exaggerated marketing claim for any serious book, but readers are strongly urged to try it…and see what happens!
