Season 2, Episode 3: Todd May – A Fragile Life

Todd May is a philosopher at Clemson University who consulted on the hit show The Good Place. We talk about death in philosophy and in living today. We also talk about all the practical philosophies like Stoicism, Buddhism and Taoism that promise to make us impervious to suffering and why Todd, at least, doesn’t want to escape his vulnerability. And also why despite not believing in their ultimate aim, he borrows heavily from them anyway.
