On episode 11, Alen and Leon speak with philosopher and USA boxing coach, Gordon Marino, PhD, about his new book, The Existentialist’s Survival Guide. We also talk about his friendship with Mike Tyson, and the joy he’s found in teaching kids how to box and thus to navigate through their anxieties.
Gordon Marino is Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Hong Kierkegaard Library at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. Professor Marino took his doctorate from the Committee on Social Thought, University of Chicago. Before coming to St. Olaf in 1995, he taught at Harvard, Yale, and Virginia Military Institute.Purchase Gordon Marino’s Book The Existentialist’s Survival Guide: How to Live Authentically in an Inauthentic Age
“When it comes to living, there’s no getting out alive. But books can help us survive, so to speak, by passing on what is most important about being human before we perish. In The Existentialist’s Survival Guide, Marino has produced an honest and moving book of self-help for readers generally disposed to loathe the genre.” —The Wall Street Journal
