In this deadpan satire, Robert M. Hutchins and Joseph P. Lyford discuss the life and philosophy of the fictitious Dr. Alexander Zuckerkandl and his philosophy that the goal of life is to get through it without feeling, in the belief that true happiness can be achieved only by becoming unconscious of our conscious. Oct. 2, 1962.
