1.6 To Be, That is the Question: Existentialism and Modern Life
The intrepid Simone Lee drops into The Caves of Altamira to discuss existentialism and the pursuit of an authentic life amid a world of hyperized everything. Simone breaks down some of existentialism’s core insights and demonstrates the many ways they can offer practical guidance for our everyday lives. In our discussion we delve into questions of what is natural, authentic, and artificial in terms of our own experiences as well as the broader social and political forces shaping us. As our lives are increasingly stretched across multiple modes of being the core questions at the center of existentialism seem as relevant as ever. Simone is an exceptional tour guide for a journey into the realm of the authentic existence.
