Peg O'Connor, Life on the Rocks: Finding Meaning in Addiction and Recovery


Addiction and recovery are, at their core, about the meaning of life. Peg looks at behaviors from a Western philosophical perspective, offering a powerful set of tools sharpened over millennia. She is a recovering alcoholic who maintains that philosophy got and helps her to stay sober.

You don't have to be familiar with philosophy to enjoy her insights on issues all addicts and their loved ones face: self-identity, moral responsibility, self-knowledge and self-deception, free will and determinism, fatalism, and the nature of God. Not to mention their relations to others! She brings abstract thought out of the ivory tower and into our living rooms. Listen in for ways to live a rich, meaningful, and joyful life beyond addiction.
