“Beauty. Some forms of beauty calm us, others excite us, but all tend to grab our attention and intrigue us enough to have an affect. Beauty of course comes in many forms beyond the human face and form. From the landscape, seascape, and skyscape to the wonders of music, art, math, and science, we’re surrounded by reminders of the deeper things, the higher things, the truest things in life and beyond. Let’s make sure we steep ourselves in a recognition and enjoyment of the many and varied beauties around us, small and large. Then, we'll be likelier to act in more beautiful ways, in all things.” —Tom Morris
The first part of our podcast is the rest of the discussion on Beauty with Steve and Tom Morris in this inspiring and rich conversation on Beauty.
The second half of the podcast is a reading and discussion of John O’Donahue’s poem A New Beginning. Joe and Steve have a heartfelt talk about it’s meaning for all of us.
Thanks for joining the Conversation today!

A native of Durham, North Carolina and a Distinguished Alumnus of Durham Academy, Tom was a Morehead-Cain Scholar at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, which has honored him, along with Michael Jordan, as a recipient of their "Distinguished Young Alumnus Award." He holds two masters degrees as well as a joint Ph.D. in both Philosophy and Religious Studies from Yale University, as well as other, honorary doctorates in recognition of his public work of bringing practical philosophy back into the cultural mix. Tom served for fifteen years as a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, where he quickly became a campus legend, in many years having an eighth of the entire student body in his classes. Recent projects involve novels, nonfiction books, and a script for an immersive theatrical experience featuring AI and the robotics of five hundred years in the future. He is a firm believer that ideas rock the world. Tom is now Chairman of the Morris Institute for Human Values in Wilmington, NC.
