Deeper Dive - DSU's podcast
About This Show
The DSU podcast “Deeper Dive” is a weekly dialog between the moderator Walker Uhl and Professor Nick Dungey. Each week we will discuss a current event of global significance. Moving beyond the traditional left – right ideological debate, we identify the deeper core philosophical ideas that give rise to the events themselves and the partisan arguments that surround them.

Boethius' Philosophy of Happiness and False Happiness
In our Thanks giving episode, "Boethius' Philosophy of Happiness and False Happiness," we explore Boethius' ancient and powerful account of human happiness and fortune. In this episode we investigate Boethius' philosophical and poetic fusion of Platonic philosophy and Stoicism. By identifying Boethius' account of Reason and Fortune, we are given deep insights into the meaning and purpose of human life, the emotional and rational strength necessary to survive the blows of Fortune, and the clarity to avoid being seduced by False Happiness. It is a perfect discussion in this time of giving thanks.
