'All Things Shining': Finding Meaning in a Secular Age

Download audio (MP3)

Philosophy professor Hubert Dreyfus's classes on existentialism and phenomenology were long among the most popular classes at UC Berkeley. One of those classes formed the basis of Dreyfus's new book "All Things Shining," co-authored with Harvard philosophy professor Sean Kelly. The authors join us to discuss the book, which deals with moments of meaning and transcendence in great works of Western literature.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Hubert Dreyfus, professor emeritus of philosophy at UC Berkeley
  • Sean Kelly, professor and chair of the Philosophy Department at Harvard University
