“I still believe that the unexamined life is not worth living: and I know that self-delusion, in the service of no matter what small or lofty cause, is a price no writer can afford” (James Baldwin).
Today, I talk with Ken Ivery about the writer James Baldwin. We discuss his book “Another Country” and how it relates to life.
- Is there a necessity to examine ourselves?
- Can we live just by ourselves-an unexamined life?
- Why does an average white, well-secured American has to examine his or her life?
Note: This is the first time of such an interview format. I feel particularly embarrassed for the grammar mistakes, particularly at the beginning, but much more for conflating the names of James Baldwin and Alec Baldwin. Please forgive me this mistake. Also I feel that my light-hearted attitude is a bit inappropriate for the content. In the future, I will bring this to a more professional level. Thanks to Ken Ivery, however, for his professionalism and vast knowledge that made this quality content afterall.
