"Cosmos or Chaos? Views of the World, Views of the Good Life" syllabus (Course or Curricular Materials)
Title: "Cosmos or Chaos? Views of the World, Views of the Good Life" syllabus
Author: Laurence Cooper, Professor of Political Science, Carleton College
Abstract: A syllabus for a freshman seminar on philosophical views on the "good life." There is no question more important to us than the question of how we should live, or the question of the good life. Everything we do, however grand or petty, ultimately stems from our answer to the question of the good life. Yet if the question of the good life is the most basic of practical questions, it still rests on prior conceptions, or answers to prior questions—and one question perhaps more than any other: what is the fundamental character of the world?
