A.C. Grayling Philosophy and Life: Exploring the Great Questions of How to Live
By Lancaster LitfestUnlisted
There is a question everyone has to ask and answer. It is ‘How should I live my life?’, meaning ‘What sort of person should I be? What values shall I live by? What shall I aim for?’
Philosophy and Life explores how to answer this Socratic challenge and examines the most important questions that arise in doing so: death, the great inevitable; love, the great desirable; meaning, the great mystery – and the great hope, happiness. What do these concepts mean – really mean? And what difference will exploring them make to one’s life and its choices?
A.C. Grayling is the Founder and Principal of the New College of the Humanities at Northeastern University, London, and its Professor of Philosophy. His many books include Democracy and Its Crisis, The History of Philosophy and For the Good of World.
