The New Epicureans by Thomas Moore available on mp3Posted November 04 2012
Recorded live in Europe, this instructive lecture is a great visit with the best-selling author of "Care of The Soul." His new book "A Life at Work," is published by Broadway Books/Random House. In this audio program Thomas first shares with the listener the roots of his "soul" work, approach to philosophy and living.
Thomas then goes on to explore how our sexually repressed society contributes to violence and dysfuntion in the current age.
Thomas Moore calls himself an epicurean, not someone given to overindulgence but understanding the importance of pleasure and beauty. He sees a connection between the repression of pleasure and an urge toward depression and violence. He recommends a life of deep, stable pleasures such as friendship, home, play, and a satisfying sexuality.
