Living a Good Life
This site collects all versions of “Living a Good Life,” a team-taught course at Wesleyan University that integrates philosophical ideas and principles with the everyday experience of our students’ real-world lives. By providing an introduction to a variety of approaches to the good life from the ancient world to the present day, and from a diverse range of cultures and traditions, our vision for this course is that students learn to think deeply, critically, and in a historically-informed way about their beliefs and values, as well as those of others.
