Carpe Diem Regained: The Vanishing Art of Seizing the Day

Hay Festival 2017, 

The philosopher and founder of The Empathy Museum unpacks the history, philosophy and modern-day applications of Carpe Diem while delivering a rousing call to action for anyone up for the daunting challenge of leading a meaningful life. He explores insights from the lives of seize-the-day pioneers including nightclub dancers, war photographers and committed revolutionaries, while drawing on everything from the neuropsychology of regret to medieval carnival rites.
