The Good Life - The vital heart of philosophy

The Good and the Good Life: what do we really know of them?

“The idea of the good is the greatest discipline.” So said Socrates (in the Republic) concerning this idea, which can be seen to permeate every life and time and movement of any kind.

The word good is possibly one of the most used words in human language, and is applied in so many ways and circumstances that it is assumed there is a common understanding or definition of it. Yet is this actually the case? And if so, what is it, what does it donate, and where is it to be found? The lecture will be an initial exploration of good, and its relationship with life.
