Aaron James, the bestselling author who wrote A--holes: A Theory has tackled a new subject in his latest book, Surfing with Sartre: An Aquatic Inquiry into a Life of Meaning, paralleling lessons learned in surfing with broader issues of everyday life.
International Business Times had a chance to chat with James about some of the topics in the book and James disclosed, " the approach is to run a bunch of philosophical questions through a certain type of person. Grounded in that way, I found I could connect up big ideas in a way one can't in specialized academic philosophy. The surfing book takes the same approach (as A--holes: A Theory). I run an even more ambitious set of questions for the ages through surfing, or what the surfer knows in knowing how to ride a wave, which is "adaptive attunement."
