Silence: In the Age of Noise

Erling Kagge

Overview

Humanity lives with constant noise. Our phones ding with infinite notifications and cars honk as we drive through traffic. Noise is in the racing anxieties at the back of our minds and in the music we blast on our commutes. These endless stimuli fill our brains, overpowering everything else with noise. For many, constant noise is a comforting distraction. True silence can be scarier than any noise.

After a lifetime of exploring the deepest reaches of nature, Erling Kagge is a master of living in and with silence. Kagge's curated philosophy might have originated from the wilds, but it is needed more than ever to survive today's world of constant connection, distraction, and noise.

Silence: In the Age of Noise explores and expands our understanding of silence, asking what silence is, where it can be found, and why it is more important now than ever before.
