    Only once did David Foster Wallace give a public talk on his views on life, during a commencement address given in 2005 at Kenyon College. This is the audio recording of David Foster Wallace delivering that very address. How does one keep from going through their comfortable, prosperous adult life unconsciously? How do we get ourselves out of the foreground of our thoughts and achieve compassion? The speech captures Wallace's electric intellect as well as his grace in attention to others.

    L’aclamat i malaguanyat escriptor David Foster Wallace reflexiona sobre alguns dels aspectes més importants de la vida en aquest manifest agut i profund. A mesura que busca respostes a preguntes gens senzilles, plasma les seves creences i deduccions sobre la naturalesa humana i dissecciona sense complexos una de les decisions més importants i alhora inconscients que prenem constantment: què pensem del món que ens envolta i de quina manera ho fem.
