Super Soul Special: David Brooks: The Quest for a Moral Life
Original Air Date: May 20, 2019
New York Times best-selling author, columnist and political commentator David Brooks discusses his book, The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life. David explains there are two metaphorical mountains we must climb to live a moral life. He describes the “first mountain life,” which is self-centered, versus the “second mountain life,” which is others-centered. David provides insight into how our culture operates from a “first mountain” perspective, by shaping us to be individualistic. However he explains why it is the community approach to life where joy can be found. David also shares how his own suffering led him to discover a deeper spiritual and connected life.
