this is one i come back to often. maria’s mind is so wonderfully curious and full of wisdom, especially on brainpickings. but this longform interview really gets to how she thinks about what it means to live a good life. great bits: -people don’t want to think, they just want to know. we’ve gotta contemplate for meaning. -knowledge is not something you get, it’s something you claim -critical thinking without hope is cynicism, but hope without critical thinking is naiveté, so try to live in between the 2, while trying to avoid resignation, despair, and cynicism.
