A Call to Mindfulness

Sep 1, 2014

In the opening Spotlight session, Dr. Beck calls us to be curious and thoughtful about the world around us rather than slipping into the lazy mindlessness that is so often our default setting.  He presents several key questions that emerge throughout his discussion.

  These questions are:

  • What does “Banality of Evil” refer to?
  • What is the source of Eichmann’s and other forms of evil in the world?
  • What are intellectual virtues?
  • How can intellectual virtues such as curiosity, humility, and attention combat mindless evil in the world?
