Carpe Diem

We’re welcoming the popular philosopher Roman Krznaric to our gathering to talk about this big old life topic. He will base his talk on his new book ‘Carpe Diem Regained: The Vanishing Art of Seizing the Day’, which explores the life-changing potential of carpe diem. He says that he will “delve into its many interpretations, from the grasping of opportunities to wild hedonism and calm living in the moment, and examines its hijacking by consumer and digital culture.”
