Bruner-Welch Lecture entitled "Søren and Simone: What Two Eccentric Geniuses Can Teach Us About Living Well Today"
Who do you want to become? What kind of life is worth desiring? And how do you go about living such a life? It has always been difficult to live well, but today we face an unusually large number of powerful forces that work against human flourishing. Søren Kierkegaard and Simone Weil were two of the most brilliant, important, and idiosyncratic thinkers of the last two hundred years. In this lecture, Adam Neder explores a few of their best ideas and how they can help us respond to some of the most pressing challenges of ordinary life today.
This lecture by Dr. Adam Neder, Whitworth's Bruner-Welch Chair in Theology, is free and open to the public.
