Carpe Diem, Seizing the Day in a Distracted World

Carpe Diem, Seizing the Day in a Distracted WorldBy Roman Krznaric

TarcherPerigee

Krznaric is a social philosopher. He encourages readers to look at the history of the phrase “Carpe Diem” and how it is applicable in today’s world. He explores the underlying message to“live each day as if it were your last.”

Readers will learn how, over the years, the phrase has been used as the path to opportunity, presence, hedonism, spontaneity or politics. In medieval times, it was a call to action. Today, Krznaric challenges us to decide if we should live each day as it if were our last-or our first!
