John Schuster: The Power of Your Past
Monday, March 14, 2011
John Schuster’s new book, The Power of Your Past: The Art of Recalling, Reclaiming and Recasting, is in sharp contrast to “nowness” philosophers who argue that our past has little value. It has great value, but we don’t use it well. Schuster shows the many ways we ignore, distort or become captive to our pasts, and explains how we can tap into this treasure trove of wisdom by revisiting and reframing our experiences.
