How should human life be valued? Is death something to suffer, or something that provides relief? Jeff, Lise and Brian discuss those questions and more in examining Anton Chekhov’s short story “Rothschild’s Violin” (or “Rothschild’s Fiddle”).
The Partially Examined Life is a philosophy podcast by some guys who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it. Each episode, we pick a text and chat about it with some balance between insight and flippancy. You don’t have to know any philosophy, or even to have read the text we’re talking about to (mostly) follow and (hopefully) enjoy the discussion
