September 3 – Are you an excellent sheep?


Special guest


Scott MacDonald, N.K. Regan Professor, Philosophy and House Professor, Hans Bethe House



Are you an excellent sheep? Is the pursuit of an elite education making you narrow, boring, and passionless? Is success at Cornell an obstacle to building a life worth living?

Best-selling author and former Yale professor William Deresiewicz thinks so! We’ll discuss the claims in his new book Excellent Sheep.

7:15pm, 125 Hans Bethe House
