Into the Past

“Life can be understood backwards, but it must be understood forwards” (Kierkegaard). Authors Suzy Zail, Philip Salom and Avi Duckor-Jones take an existential dive into the way the past can haunt us, holding a mirror up to what we find there and how we learn from the things we see. Moderated by Bernard Cohen.
