#258 – Revolution and The Quest for Happiness in The Middle East with Doug Davis, PhD


Douglas A. Davis, Ph.D. is a chreished friend from grad school days at the University of Michigan. He recently retired from full-time teaching at Haverford College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania where he was professor of psychology and for many years department chair. A frequent, Shrink Rap Radio guest, Doug has spent many years studying and writing about Morocco and speaks fluent Arabic, as well. Given what’s going on in that part of the world at this very moment, and Doug’s expertise, I thought another interview with him would be especially timely.

Here is the link to Doug’s Blog which he references in the interview.

    I really enjoyed this interview. I’ve traveled a bit in Egypt and was very impressed with Egyptian hospitality and generousity, particularly outside of the main tourist areas. I have had a bit of a fascination for Arabic music and dance for some time so have been very concerned with the way people in the middle east, particularly Muslim people have been depicted in the media. This interview with a man who so clearly likes and respects people from middle eastern nations was like a balm. Thanks!

    this was really eye-opening and inspirational. i really like the fact that this show can occasionally go beyond the usual format and broaden our minds about far-off cultures. episodes like this make this podcast so rich.
