Becoming RealPhilosopher Robert Sessions is our guest this week. His recent book, "Becoming Real: Authenticity in an Age of Distractions", uses personal stories and philosophical musings to discuss the way everyday distractions keep us from being ourselves. Robert believes that our modern culture makes it very difficult for us to develop a coherent identity. With quotes and examples from ancient wisdom to modern politics, Robert gives suggestions and points to paths that lead to more genuine and happy lives.

Robert is Professor of Philosophy & Humanities at Kirkwood Community College.
