David Brooks: The Quest for a Moral Life

What does it take to lead a meaningful life? Brooks believes we live in a society that celebrates freedom and takes individualism to the extreme.

He explains that personal fulfillment depends on how well we choose and execute our commitments. Through his research, he identifies and explores four principal commitments that define a life of meaning and purpose.

Brooks is a popular political and social commentator and appears regularly on “PBS NewsHour” and “Meet the Press.”
