Updated: Oct 23, 2022

Video from Ralston College

"Stephen Blackwood speaks with Cal Newport, writer and Professor of Computer Science at Georgetown University. They begin by reflecting on the historically unparalleled challenges and distractions of the digital age. They then discuss strategies to reclaim our mental autonomy, the generative power of non-instrumental thinking, and the fundamental dynamic of thought and life. They conclude with a discussion of Homer's 'Odyssey' as a paradigm for turning dislocation and difficulty into deeper foundations for a more meaningful life." from video introduction
