Call in to speak with the host
On tonight’s show, host Kasaun E. Henry evaluates what he refers to as Josef Pieper’s “call to wisdom.” Josef Pieper (1904–1997), a German Catholic Philosopher, thought that people have become slaves to jobs and careers and have lost sight of a more important responsibility: to go “beyond the everyday world of work” and pursue wisdom. In his works, In Tune with the World: A Theory of Festivity, Leisure the Basis of Culture, and The Philosophical Act, Pieper asks people living in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to reexamine their values of jobs and knowledge.
Questions to think about:
How do you define “work” or “making a living”?
What place does knowledge and wisdom have in your life?
