Anti-Authoritarianism and Resisting Illegitimate Authority, Talk by author Bruce E. Levine

Bruce E. Levine, a practicing clinical psychologist, writes and speaks widely on how society, culture, politics and psychology intersect. His latest book is Resisting Illegitimate Authority: A Thinking Person’s Guide to Being an Anti-Authoritarian-Strategies, Tools, and Models (2018).

In this fifty minute talk, Dr. Levine will define authoritarianism and anti-authoritarianism, and he will discuss definition controversies. Next, he will discuss his path to writing Resisting Illegitimate Authority, including how he became an activist in the mental health treatment reform movement and began focusing on authoritarianism and anti-authoritarianism in the larger society. Dr. Levine will then discuss Resisting Illegitimate Authority, which is a book about anti-authoritarians and also for them. Much of the book is devoted to profiling a diverse group of U.S. anti-authoritarians, all of whom having something to teach about anti-authoritarian triumph and tragedy, and Dr. Levine will discuss some of these profiles and offer ideas for anti-authoritarians struggling to survive and have a good life. Following the talk, Dr. Levine will take questions and comments

Talk Description:

After the past three years of a political climate in turmoil, next year we hope to correct the course. While there are many suggestions as to what that course is, the consensus always excludes what to do about the far right that dominates today’s climate. How do we change that, how have we fought them in the past and how do we fight them in the future and most importantly, who are we fighting? This will be a discussion about what we have seen and what to expect as we go forward.
