More Human Podcast
More Human Podcast
More Human is a podcast inspired by the conviction that when Socrates said that “the unexamined life is not worth living,” he was right.
To live a truly human life, Socrates believed, is to cultivate our minds. We live well when we live thoughtfully, when we engage our intellects, when we challenge ourselves, when we resist the pull of the shallow and the superficial and pursue instead the true and the beautiful and the good.
As the official podcast of the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Humanities Center at Cuyahoga Community College, More Human explores how engaging with literature, philosophy, history and art enables us to live deeper, richer, fuller and more human lives.
Episodes feature conversations with students, faculty and other scholars working in the humanities at Tri-C and throughout Northeast Ohio.
