‘Striving for the true life’ is a series of nine lectures by philosophers, poets and authors. Philosopher of science, orthopedagogist and author Jan Geurtz claims that our search for love and acknowledgement stems from a fundamental self-rejection. We try to compensate this negation by looking for the appreciation of others, mainly by means of a successful, soothing love relationship. But this goal doesn’t always work out the way it was planned. With humour Jan Geurtz points a way out of these vicious circles.
