Online-Talk: Irvin D. Yalom – Love, Loss and What Matters in the End

Stanford Professor Emeritus, world renowned psychotherapist and philosopher Irvin D. Yalom shares his most important personal insights in conversation with philosopher Dr. Martin Ebeling.

Recently, 89-year-old Yalom survived severe heart failure, making a miraculous recovery. But his wife and the love of his life, Marilyn, died in November 2019. When it became clear that Marilyn's illness would lead to death, the renowned cultural scholar and author insisted on writing a book together. Shortly before the two finished "A Matter of Death and Life: Love, Loss and What Matters in the End" Marilyn passed away. As someone who has seen so much grief in his patients and helped so many people cope with it, Yalom is now surprised and fascinated by the extent to which it overwhelms him.

Join us for an honest, personal and insightful live Online-Talk on May 11 where philosopher and School of Life lecturer Martin Ebeling will speak with Irvin D. Yalom about the lessons he has gathered during this difficult time, as well as over the course of his extraordinary life. As a co-founder of Existential Psychotherapy, Yalom shares profound insights from his distinguished career on how to navigate life's existential questions and crises.

The live event will be held in English.
