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.

Liberal Philosophy, Happiness, and Affluenza Anonymous
5 days ago
In our most recent episode, "Liberal Philosophy, Happiness, and Affluenza Anonymous," we continue our discussion of the Ancient-Modern debate surrounding the meaning and pursuit of Happiness. In this episode, we investigate the historical and philosophical origins of the Modern, Liberal conception of Happiness and investigate the personal and political consequences. Has the Modern, Liberal account of happiness made us happy? Or, has it turned us into a culture of addicts and prepared the way for political authoritarianism? Controversial stuff, no doubt. Enjoy.
