Virtue, Happiness, and the Human Good (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Virtue, Happiness, and the Human Good
Author: Beau Weston and Danilo Petranovich
Abstract: Aristotle says happiness is the highest aim of human life, the only end that is not a means to some other end. Happiness, he argues, is ‘an action of the soul in accordance with virtue.’ How can we live a private life that contributes to our happiness? How can we live a public life that contributes to our happiness? This seminar takes a philosophical and sociological approach to these fundamental questions. Readings are drawn from Aristotle, Alexis de Tocqueville, Alasdair MacIntyre, and Jonathan Haidt. Student will engage in practical exercises and propose projects to enhance happiness.
