In his 2019 book, “Standing for Reason: The University in a Dogmatic Age,” Dr. John Sexton, former president of New York University, argues that a “secular dogmatism,” impenetrable by dialogue or reason, has come to dominate political discourse in America. Jewish Theological Seminary Chancellor Shuly Rubin Schwartz will join Sexton for an online dialogue inspired by his book, moderated by the host of public radio’s “On Being,” Krista Tippett.
