About the Event
(Hybrid; taught by Lauren Loos)
In Stolen Focus, author Johann Hari notes “It’s not your fault you can’t focus. It’s by design. The truth is that you are living in a system that is pouring acid on your attention every day, and then you are being told to blame yourself and to fiddle with your own habits while the world’s attention burns.”
In this groundbreaking work, Hari makes a strong case that without robust attention spans and the ability to focus deeply, we risk our ability to empathize, our democracy, and the very quality of humanity. Join us as we unpack this groundbreaking work, which exposes the forces behind our collective loss of focus and concentration.
