How do we reach for wisdom instead of self-help solutions? Much to their embarrassment, New York Times columnist David Brooks and Kate Bowler often find their books in the “Self-Help section.” David sat down with Kate at the historic Sixth & I Synagogue in Washington, D.C. to talk about her book, No Cure For Being Human, and the twisty-turny journey of living without easy answers.
In this live, funny and poignant conversation, David and Kate discuss:
If a life is ever complete
How to define hope if it isn’t just a type of optimism
The limits of stoicism
What I wish healthcare professionals would do instead
And you cannot miss David’s unplanned pun at the beginning. It was so bad and so funny and nothing can be better.
