Tusculan Disputations: What It Is About, And Why It Is Important (Podcast)

In this podcast I discuss my new translation of Cicero’s Tusculan Disputations. The work deals with five critical problems that face all of us: the fear of death, how to endure pain, how to alleviate mental distress, the various disorders of the mind, and why virtue is important for living a happy life. (A review of the book can be found in the October 2021 issue of The New Criterion). What questions could be more essential and fundamental than these?

The podcast can be found here, and also on iTunes, YouTube, and Google Play:

    • Yes, Lee, it’s offered in many other places. Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, The Book Depository, and Indie Bound, to name a few. All you have to do is go to the websites for these vendors and search for it using their search engines.
