Audio: Nine Questions with Eric Oliver: The Interpreter of Shadows

Nine Questions with Eric Oliver

Twenty years ago, Dr. Eric Oliver started teaching a course at the University of Chicago on how to know your self. In the class, Eric would ask his students nine questions that were essential to ask in order to craft “a well-examined life.” This exercise inspired the podcast Nine Questions. In this episode, Oliver poses these nine questions to author and activist Andrew Solomon:

1) What am I?
2) What is my purpose?
3) Who am I, really?
4) What are my dreams telling me?
5) How (not what) am I feeling?
6) Who is writing my life’s story?
7) Do I own my shit, or does it own me?
8) How do I find love?
9) Where am I going from here?
