Described as one of Britain’s top lifestyle philosophers, Roman Krznaric is a cultural thinker and writer on the art of living. Along with Alain de Botton, he is a founding faculty member of The School of Life in London. He is the author of the wildly popular philosophy book How Should We Live, which explores what we can learn from the past about better living, and How to Find Fulfilling Work, on the art and science of doing what we love.
Drawing on over 10 years of research, his most recent book Empathy: Why It Matters and How to Get It, explores a concept that is getting more public attention today than at any point in its history (the frequency of Google searches for the word ‘empathy’ has more than doubled in the past decade).
Krznaric outlines the case for empathy - and asserts that the imaginative act of stepping into another person’s shoes and viewing the world from their perspective is a radical tool for social change and should be a guiding light for the art of living.
Join one of the world’s leading contemporary philosophers as he discusses empathy, the history of love, the future of work, and the art of living with Laura Maguire, who teaches philosophy at Stanford and is the director of research for the Philosophy Talk radio program.
“Krznaric trawls the timeless to surface the timely and excavate practical ideas
about the art of living, about how we, today, can live better, richer, more fulfilling lives —
ideas across love, work, family, time, money, death, creativity, and more.”
