Stephen Fry on What Makes Us Human

I’ve always enjoyed Stephen Fry. More than many celebrities or personalities, he seems particularly capable of cutting through the noise and being vulnerable in a way that makes others want to meet him in that space. It’s difficult not to admire that honesty, candor, and obvious love of humanity.

On The Jeremy Vine Show on the BBC, he contributed to an ongoing series that posits a simple question: what makes us human? While I’ve not heard many other installments in this series, I was taken aback by Fry’s beautiful contribution. Is it really any wonder he names James Joyce’s Ulysses as his all-time favorite book? Spoiler alert: Fry argues language is what makes us human; I’m inclined to agree.
