Philosophy: The Good Life
‘The life truly worth living is the considered life’, said Socrates, two and a half millenia ago. Socrates meant a life that was well informed and has goals which will benefit both oneself and society. The Good Life, ergo, allows us to grow autonomously, and rather than be dictated to by duty, empower us to live a full and flourishing life. Beginning with the Ancients, taking a whistle stop through the Renaissance, and then summarising with the Modern, this course will give us a taste of the Good Life from some of the greatest minds that reflect upon it.
