Eric Werner and The Socrates Express
Won’t you join us for an exciting virtual trip? The New York Times bestselling author of The Geography of Bliss embarks on a rollicking intellectual journey, following in the footsteps of history’s greatest thinkers and showing us how each—from Epicurus to Nietzsche, Thoreau to Gandhi—offers practical and spiritual lessons for today’s unsettled times.
“We contemplate for the same reasons we travel: to see the world from a different perspective, to unearth hidden beauty and find new ways of being. We want to learn how to embrace wonder. Face regrets. Sustain hope.”
