My guest today, Luke Burgis, is an entrepreneur,
college professor at The Busch School of Business at the Catholic
University of America. He worked on Wallstreet and now has a book
Wanting: the Power of Mimetic Desire in Everyday Life. An insight to some of our hardwired competitive nature and how we can be mindful of it in our work and with our neighbors.
Somewhere during Luke's journey of one of his four start ups, he wasn't feeling satisfied or experiencing a 'transcendents". Who goes into a competitive business looking for humanity or human ecology?
Luke shares his motivation for putting a modern day breakdown on the teaching of famed French historian and philosopher Rene Girard in his latest book. I learned a lot and appreciate that there are people like Luke out in the world, working and teaching our young adults. Enjoy
