The Examined Life

I can only imagine that this title comes from Socrates assertion that “the unexamined life is not worth living.” In the case of the psychoanalytic sessions described in Stephen Grosz’s The Examined Life it’s the examination which might return the fractured life to something worth living.

Excellently read by Peter Marinker these tales of change and loss are by turns fascinating, moving, inspiring and shocking.

Episode 1 of 5 is here from where you’ll be able to navigate to the others.

    Ah, sadly I think I’ve missed the iPlayer boat on this one! One of my friends thoroughly recommended it after hearing Marinker’s reading, and I’m sorry to have missed out. Nevertheless, I did go on to read the book myself (review) and found it to be light, but at times insightful.
