Session

The Age of Anxiety :

Amrita Tripathi and Casey Schwartz in conversation

An important conversation about the uncertainty and anxiety that has become a collateral of our times, and the power of focus and attention to shape our thoughts, as we sit with our screens in isolation, trying to stay sane. Casey Schwartz’s new book, Attention: A Love Story, is both a personal account and one that seeks inspiration from phenomenal writers such as Aldous Huxley, William James and Simone Weil. Amrita Tripathi has recently co-authored Real Stories of Dealing with Depression, which works towards de-stigmatising mental illness in India.
