Beyond Red and Blue

A Road Scholar Program by Peter S. Wenz

Americans are not irrevocably divided into two hostile political camps of the right and left. Instead, Peter Wenz claims Americans use twelve different political philosophies, each individual drawing on at least half a dozen when contemplating hot-button political issues. Coalitions of the right and left can form because people on the opposite sides of the political spectrum can often find different reasons (each within the political philosophies they use) for reaching the same conclusions as one another. Join Peter Wenz as he illustrates this thesis by considering same-sex marriage, school vouchers, and genetic engineering.
