Minter Dialogue with Roman Krznaric
Roman Krznaric is a social philosopher and bestselling author of multiple books, including Empathy, How Should We Live?, Carpe Diem and How to Find Fulfilling Work, books that have been published in more than 20 languages. He is also the founder of the world’s first Empathy Museum and of the digital Empathy Library. In this conversation, we discuss the intersection of the art of living and social change, the importance of empathy in our lives, as well as the role of the esoteric game of real tennis in our lives.

I heard Krznaric speak at the The School of Life, and he’s simply lovely. I had a Carpe Diem moment in which I moved from the US to UK for grad school at 49 years old, and it was terrifying. Traveling from Birmingham to London to attend his lecture helped me realize that I’d not made a mistake. If you’ve not bought Carpe Diem Regained, don’t wait another minute.
Thanks for your comment Karen. I’m also a fan!
