Intellectual Life in Dark Times
Dr. Zena Hitz
St. John’s College
We think of education as a way we find our way in the world, to careers that are meaningful, lucrative, or secure. Dr. Zena Hitz, Tutor at St. John’s College, will look at some historical autobiographical accounts of the life of the mind as lived under extreme difficulty, and argue that education should provide us with resources to console us in dark times as well as to launch us onto success.
