Walker Talks Live Stream
Kierkegaard: The Musical!

Kierkegaard the poetic philosopher. Long honored as a founding spirit of what came to be called Existentialism, Kierkegaard’s appeal is even more hydra-headed than this. His ruling inspiration is to bring his readers into a deeper sense of themselves as they encounter the themes and metaphors which appear so richly in so many ways throughout his writings. We come to see him as a singular exemplar of a unique moral passion, gifted with numberless insights which only grow more profound as the ages roll on…

Walker Brents III regales us with 90 minutes of cogent insight into the workings of the poetico-philosophical mind in one guise or another most every month, though he travels the byways of the American west in the summer and skips a few for that.

Tune in to his talk via our Facebook page or YouTube channel. No in-store audience except by special request. Once you’re on our FB page or at our YT channel, look for the link to “live” video  — that should take you to the talk once it’s time. If you arrive early and see no evidence, wait a minute and “refresh your browser.” The stream is only evident once it’s in swing, so you have to come into it while it’s playing in order to find it. Clear as mud? Give us a call! (415) 586-3733.
