“Our higher education for the most part has stopped teaching students to encounter these questions – and this has come with disastrous consequences for society. I want to help students, and ultimately, society writ large, to start asking these questions again. How do I live a worthy life? What does it mean to live in such a way, and why is this important for our political regime? ”
