Kirk J. Schneider studied the psychology of polarization or what he terms “the polarized mind.” He found that the polarized mind, which is the fixation on a single point of view to the utter exclusion of competing points of view, is one of the chief scourges of humanity, let alone particular cultures or individuals.   Finally, he examined cultures and individuals who countered the polarized mind and traced their relevance for contemporary times.
