Samir Chopra -- "Anxiety," with Benjamin Kunkel

Samir Chopra will speak about and sign his new book, Anxiety: A Philosophical Guide, on Thursday, April 4th at 6:30pm, at Boulder Bookstore. He will be in conversation with Benjamin Kunkel for this special event. Tickets for this event are $5 (plus a small processing fee) and are available on Eventbrite HERE or by clicking the button below.

About the Book:
Today, anxiety is usually thought of as a pathology, the most diagnosed and medicated of all psychological disorders. But anxiety isn't always or only a medical condition. Indeed, many philosophers argue that anxiety is a normal, even essential, part of being human, and that coming to terms with this fact is potentially transformative, allowing us to live more meaningful lives by giving us a richer understanding of ourselves. In Anxiety, Samir Chopra explores valuable insights about anxiety offered by ancient and modern philosophies--Buddhism, existentialism, psychoanalysis, and critical theory. Blending memoir and philosophy, he also tells how serious anxiety has affected his own life--and how philosophy has helped him cope with it.

Personal, poignant, and hopeful, Anxiety is a book for anyone who is curious about rethinking anxiety and learning why it might be a source not only of suffering but of insight.
