David Brooks: The Quest for a Moral Life
New York Times best-selling author, columnist and political commentator David Brooks discusses his new book, The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life. David explains there are two metaphorical mountains we must climb to live a moral life. He describes the â€œfirst mountainâ€ life, which is self-centered, vs. the â€œsecond mountainâ€ life, which is others-centered. David provides insight into how our culture operates from a â€œfirst mountainâ€ perspective, by shaping us to be individualistic, but says it is the community approach to life where joy can be found. David also shares how his own suffering led him to discover a deeper spiritual and connected life.
