Fridays@One 50th Anniversary Series - James Miller: Is the Examined Life Worth Living?

1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Throughout the school year, the Institute for Retired Professionals (IRP) presents lectures on timely topics for members, the New School community, and the general public. This year, as it commemorates 50 years at The New School, the IRP celebrates the richness and diversity of faculty voices at the university. Fridays @ One is supported by a generous gift from the Estelle Tolkin Memorial Fund. 

Professor James Miller is a member of the Politics faculty and the Committee on Liberal Studies at The New School for Social Research. His most recent book, Examined Lives: From Socrates to Nietzsche, is the basis for his talk "Is the Examined Life Worth Living?" Professor Miller received his PhD in the History of Ideas from Brandeis University; his recent research is devoted to the history of philosophy and the relationship of modern democracy to dissenting mass movements. In his youth, he was a music critic for Rolling Stone (in the 1960s and 1970s) and Newsweek (in the 1980s).
