Why the Arts and Humanities Matter: A Podcast Talk

On Wednesday, 9 March 2022, I joined Erich Prince (Open with Erich Prince) to discuss Eric Voegelin, VoegelinView (the journal I’m editor of), and the importance of the arts and humanities and the idea of an aesthetic life in the 21st century. Included in the discussion are some personal stories about me and my adventures in hiking and appraisal of romanticism and why the romantic aesthetic way of life is so, so important in our contemporary society.

You can listen to the episode here:


Hesiod, Paul Krause in real life, is the editor-in-chief of VoegelinView. He is writer, classicist, and historian. He has written on the arts, culture, classics, literature, philosophy, religion, and history for numerous journals, magazines, and newspapers. He is the author of The Odyssey of Love and the Politics of Plato, and a contributor to the College Lecture Today and the forthcoming book Diseases, Disasters, and Political Theory. He holds master’s degrees in philosophy and religious studies (biblical studies & theology) from the University of Buckingham and Yale, and a bachelor’s degree in economics, history, and philosophy from Baldwin Wallace University.
