PHIL2030: Quest for the Good Life

Class Program
Credits 3
In Quest for the Good Life, you'll have the opportunity to wrestle with the big questions about how to live and what makes your life meaningful. The course tackles such issues as personal identity (who am I?), how do I know what I know, what moral obligations do I have, how can I live a purposeful life, what does the good life look like and what sacrifices should I make for others? We will learn what the Greats like Aristotle, Plato, and Descartes have to say about how to live well. We'll reason through real-world case studies where philosophical considerations underlie major business and life decisions. We will talk in small intensive dialogue groups and in large, raucous debates about how we answer these questions.
