This class will discuss the meaning of life, human flourishing, virtue, and the pros/cons of living a life centered around academia, industry, or politics. By the end of this class, you will know what the goal of all civilization is, what The Good is, how the concept of happiness came to be, and why we innately find virtue more wholesome than fame, status, or wealth. In all, you will gain the tools necessary to critique your own life and mold it to your desire.
