Students around the world are discovering the power and joy of practical philosophy, and so can you! The Good Life, written by our founder and director, Philip Golabuk, lays out a simple, five-point program for living well in six illuminating lessons that many have found life-changing. Based on the wisdom of the ancient Greeks, The Good Life is a comprehensive curriculum for "human flourishing" that can be applied readily in any situation.
|"Have you ever wondered why some days everything goes your way, while others seem set up to defeat you at every turn? Philosophers and poets have been trying to tell us why since the human race began pondering its existence and writing down its best ideas—which arguably nobody did better than the ancient Greeks. They could tell you why in two words: "the gods." In modern terms, the Greek view becomes a philosophic model for living well—a "mythos"— with "the gods" referring to the unpredictable, chaotic forces operating in every situation. Forces beyond our control. Happy coincidences. Reversals of fortune. Unexpected results. Sucker punches. Twist endings. The things no one can see coming. All of which is far more important than we may realize. Because how we conduct ourselves in relation to these forces is what determines our fate."|
