Are you detached from life, depressed by isolation, distracted or restless? Do we live in an epidemic of Sloth or Acedia? Is the remedy to our perceived laziness and despair more discipline, restraint and will, or perhaps a little detachment might help? In the sixth installment of the Seven Deadly Sins series, Dr. John Plotz, Professor of English, Brandeis University, links our contemporary struggles to stay on the right path with the works of thinkers, writers, and artists of the past.
