Author(s):Dr Raj Persaud interviews Dr Zena Hitz
What does it really mean to be an intellectual? Does it have anything to do with academia, or can anyone become an intellectual through inquisition and deep thinking? In this podcast, Dr Raj Persaud talks to Dr Zena Hitz about her 2020 book Lost in Thought, in which she argues that ‘learning for its own sake’ is a key ingredient of human happiness, vital for the circumstances we currently live in.
