This week the crew is joined by Drs. Ben and Jenna Storey. The Storeys are professors of political philosophy at Furman, directors of the Tocqueville Fellows Program, and authors of the new book: Why We Are Restless: On the Modern Quest for Contentment. We discuss how they came to write a book on restlessness, what Montaigne, Pascal, and Rousseau think about human happiness, and the way that Tocqueville might help us live vertically in a horizontal world.
