About

The Examined Life seeks to elicit and explore questions from some of today’s most interesting thinkers.  The project draws on the wisdom of  academics, artists, activists and politicians from across the globe. Each contributor has been asked to distil their concerns, passions or preoccupations into a single question that we should be asking ourselves.  The website will be updated with a new question and interview every two weeks.  The hope is that these questions can be explored through dialogue in the comments section, or used as a stimulus in classrooms and discussion groups wherever you are.

The project was developed by Kenneth Primrose, a teacher from Scotland, and the website brought into being by Oregon-based web designer Nate Laffan.  We hope over time to create a library of questions and encourage a culture of enquiry.
