Adam Phillips in conversation with Paul Holdengräber

Friday 26 July, 8pm, Serpentine Pavilion
A conversation between psychoanalyst Adam Phillips and Paul Holdengräber, Director of Public Programmes at The New York Public Library. Discussing Phillips’s most recent book, Missing Out: In Praise of the Unlived Life, the conversation addresses growing up, frustration and the time spent imagining the ‘other life’ we could have lived. Phillips proposes that our acceptance of this frustration might itself be the key to leading a more satisfying life. This event offers audiences the unique chance to become a part of an ongoing dialogue between Phillips and Holdengräber that began earlier this year in New York as part of the LIVE from NYPL series.
