Christoph Irmscher: Against Complacency: Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience”

This week on Interchange, host Doug Storm speaks with Christoph Irmscher, Provost Professor of English at Indiana University, about Henry David Thoreau’s influential essay, “Civil Disobedience.” Doug reads selections from the text that Irmscher explicates. The crux of the vitality and urgency of Thoreau’s language lives in his assertions to stand as a person with a conscience, to cultivate a moral sense.
