About this Episode

Emmet and John begin their reading series on Alisdair MacIntyre's classic work After Virtue. This episode's a more granular look at MacIntyre's argument to make sure we've fully grasped its fundamentals before moving forward. The episode closes with a discussion of mourning in Anglo-Saxon poetry and Borges' "Borges and I."
