Lars Svendsen on "A Philosophy of Boredom"

March 9, 2008

Lars Svendsen teaches philosophy at the University of Bergen in Norway and is the author of "A Philosophy of Boredom." He talks with Anne Strainchamps about boredom's long, long history. Or maybe it just seems that way. Also Jon Winokur has compiled and edited a book called "Ennui To Go: The Art of Boredom." Doug Gordon combines some of the famous quotes about boredom with some songs about boredom. And the results are anything but boring.
