By Prospect Team  

The Germans have a word for it—can the rest of the world learn from them, too? Philosopher Susan Neiman joins the Prospect podcast to discuss her book Learning From the Germans.

Plus: Rebecca Liu and Stephanie Boland talk Rhodes Must Fall—and a strange Lithuanian tourist attraction.
