Wellbeing, Philosophy

MIT philosophy professor Kieran Setiya joins journalist Oliver Burkeman to show how philosophy can help us find our way. He will share his own experience with chronic pain and the consolation that comes from making sense of it. He will ask what we can learn from loneliness and loss about the value of human life. And he will explore how we can fail with grace, confront injustice, and search for meaning in the face of despair.
