What does Ethics have to do with living the life we were meant to live? In Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle examines the timeless philosophical question: what does it mean to be a "good" person? This leads to other important questions such as: what makes for a "good" life?
Aristotle suggests that there are many expressions of "good" which can vary according to temperament and circumstance. For one who is poor, wealth seems to be the ultimate good. While, for someone who is ill, good health is their goal. But there is one good that all human beings aspire to regardless of circumstances, and that is happiness.
In this workshop, we will discuss a few of the ideas of Aristotle on what we can do to live a happy life, and hopefully find some keys for finding our best life. No prior knowledge of his teachings are necessary: only bring an open mind and a passion for learning!
