  3. Sheldon Solomon - The Worm at the Core: On the Role of Death in Life

    Sheldon Solomon is Professor of Psychology at Skidmore College. He is best known for developing terror management theory along with Jeff Greenberg and Tom Pyszczynski, which is concerned with how humans deal with their own sense of mortality. He studies the effects of the uniquely human awareness of death on human behaviors. He is co-author of several books, including the one we’ll be discussing today – The Worm at the Core: On the Role of Death in Life.

    I was initially drawn to Prof. Solomon’s work because I listened to a three-hour long podcast interview between him and Lex Fridman. It was the most enlightening podcast I had listened to on the Lex Fridman Show, without exaggeration. That was a few months ago during a time when I was very confused and stressed. I was working nonstop every day and deciding between whether to pursue an economics PhD or go into the “real world” to work for a few years first before reassessing. Prof. Solomon’s ideas from taking a leap of faith in life to confronting the possibility of death were truly profound and changed a lot of my thinking back then.

  5. How woke media undermines democracy: A book event with Batya Ungar-Sargon | LIVE STREAM

    American journalism is under attack. In this age of intense polarization, major news outlets face pressure to push politically correct narratives under the guise of objective, unbiased reporting. Has the Fourth Estate fallen prey to a rising pressure to be woke?

    Batya Ungar-Sargon, deputy opinion editor at Newsweek, says yes. In her forthcoming book, “Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy” (Encounter Books, 2021), she chronicles the radical shift of American journalism in recent years and what it means for our democracy as a whole.

    Please join us for a discussion on the current state of American media, featuring AEI’s Samuel J. Abrams and Thomas Chatterton Williams, Virginia Heffernan of Wired, and Dr. Ungar-Sargon.

  8. Webinar — Adam Smith: His Life, Work, and Legacy

    More than 200 years after his death, Adam Smith’s political and moral philosophy and his foundational work in economics remain highly relevant. They provide useful insights into how we can best govern, work, and live together. Too many leaders missed studying these foundational texts in college, and even those who did study them could benefit from a refresher. This webinar will provide an opportunity to dive into Adam Smith’s work and will provide a thoughtful conversation about Smith’s writing and what it means for us today.

    Join AEI’s Yuval Levin as he moderates a panel to discuss the key ideas and themes of Adam Smith’s major works, The Theory of Moral Sentiments and The Wealth of Nations, the connections between Smith’s ethics and economics, and the relevance of Smith for twenty-first century political and economic discourse.

    Yuval will be joined by four eminent Adam Smith scholars: Daniel Klein (George Mason University), James Otteson (Wake Forest University), Maria Pia Paganelli (Trinity University), and Russ Roberts (Hoover Institution).
