Show Notes

Richard White is a professor of philosophy at Creighton University and the author of several books, including, recently, a book about spirituality and philosophy titled Spiritual Philosophers: From Schopenhauer to Irigaray. He recently published an article titled “Teaching Spirituality: A Personal View.” I have my own experience teaching such a course, and Richard and I sit down today to discuss our experiences, what spirituality means as an academic subject in philosophy and literature, and why teaching about spirituality is so challenging and rewarding.
