HUGH MACKAY IN CONVERSATION
Hear one of Australia’s most respected social psychologists social researcher Hugh Mackay AO as he discussed his two new related books, a non-fiction work The inner self and a novel The question of love.
In The inner self, Mackay explores the differences between our ‘inner’ and ‘social’ selves and, in the process, take us to the heart of what it means to be human. His new novel, The question of love, adds a more intimate dimension to his exploration of the mysteries of human love.
Mackay examines the ways we try to hide from the truth about our essentially compassionate nature, and he will describe the psychological freedom we enjoy when we finally face that most searching question of all: ‘Who am I, really?’
Mackay is author of the 2019 book Australia Reimagined: Towards a more compassionate less anxious society.
Hear him talk about his work as a social researcher and his new books and engage in a discussion with Lynne Reeder from Compassionate Ballarat.
