Q&A

What’s your favorite book and why?

After Virtue by Alasdair MacIntyre. No other book has come close to systematically explaining the development of morality and ethics, from the Ancient World to modernity. If you want to understand the incommensurable nature of contemporary moral issues, you need to read this book!

What’s one thing you think every person should experience in their lifetime?

Hunting (or gathering) food from the wild. Getting food from the field to the plate is a very human experience. It connects you to your ancestors who did not have the convenience of ready to eat food.

If you can instantly become an expert in something, what would it be?

Piano.
