Krista Tippett, host of award-winning NPR program “On Being“, discusses her latest book Becoming Wise: an inquiry into the mystery and art of living.
In 2014, Tippett received the National Humanities Medal at the White House for ‘thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.’
Krista Tippett program, On Being, “shines a light on the most extraordinary voices on the great questions of meaning for our time. Scientists in a variety of fields; theologians from an array of faiths; poets, activists, and many others have all opened themselves up to Tippett’s compassionate but searching conversation. In Becoming Wise, Tippett distills the insights she has gleaned from this luminous conversation in its many dimensions into a coherent narrative journey, over time and from mind to mind, into what it means to be human. Critics says the book is “a master class in living, individually and collectively. Wisdom emerges through the raw materials of the everyday.”
