Episode 198: The Origins of Western Identity

Good morning, listeners! We’ve got a lively discussion touching on history, philosophy, and culture this week, as Richard Aldous speaks with Ingrid Rossellini about her new book, Know Thyself: Western Identity from Classical Greece to the Renaissance.

The question of identity has been central to human civilization since time immemorial, and it’s at the heart of our political divides today. In her new book, Rossellini takes an interdisciplinary approach to explore how identity has been conceived and understood in the West, from the ancient Greeks to the dawn of modernity.
