Professor Sara Protasi is being featured on this week’s episode of Philosophy Talk, a national syndicated radio show that “celebrates the value of the examined life.” Philosophy talk describes the episode by saying:
Bertrand Russell said that envy was one of the most potent causes of unhappiness, and it’s well known as one of the seven deadly sins. But is envy always a bad thing? Is it simply a petty emotion we should try to avoid, or could envy help us understand ourselves more? Is envy rooted in unhealthy comparison with others, or does it come from our own vision of excellence? Could envy even be used to improve ourselves? Josh and Ken consider whether to envy their guest, Sara Protasi from the University of Puget Sound.
The episode will be available to stream for free starting Friday, February 1st. It will be available for free for one week. To listen, visit this link.
