Acclaimed author John Kaag reveals the power of philosophy and hiking to teach us to live more fully and deeply. Kaag draws on his own experience in the Swiss Alps where, at two crucial points in his life, he retraces the steps of the seminal thinker Freidrich Nietzsche, who wrote his foundational works there.
The Atlantic praised “Hiking with Nietzsche” as [a book that] “heals us, not by making us feel better, but by making us well.” National Public Radio agrees, calling it, a “stimulating book about combating despair and complacency with searching reflection.” Kaag delivers both an inspiring and invigorating talk!!
John Kaag is author of the prizewinning American Philosophy: A Love Story (FSG), named a Best Book of 2016 by NPR and an New York Times Editor’s Choice.
