Publisher's Summary

Get the Summary of Gad Saad's The Parasitic Mind

Sample key takeaways from Chapter One:

  1. Gad Saad is a Lebanese Jewish author who experienced the Lebanese Civil War that broke out in 1975. During that time, which group you belonged to mattered more than your individuality. It was a war fueled by tribalism and sectarianism, and it is likely what caused Saad’s disdain for identity politics. 
  2. Psychoanalytic theories often overestimate the influence parents have on shaping their child’s identity. They tend to ignore the unique combination of genes that defines us. While some people might indeed act in accordance with how their parents raised them, others are more driven by a desire to meet certain ideals. 
  3. Saad has always been committed to two foundational ideals: freedom and truth. He has always believed that religious practice restricts freedom. Academia and science, on the other hand, granted him immense freedom to navigate radically different intellectual landscapes.
