What Makes A Good Life Taster course

Ref: C3129221

Many people would agree that the world in which we now live is different to the one we knew before Covid-19. People are questioning their lives and perhaps planning to make change. Some people are considering the bigger questions. For example what is the purpose of our personal existence? Human life is frail and temporary – are we living ours with the best purpose and in the most meaningful way? We will examine various views to see if philosophy can offer any guidance. Finally, we will consider if a good life can culminate with a good death. This taster course promises to be a thought-provoking but enjoyable course where you will be challenged to consider new perspectives in a safe, supported space.

Course aim

The taster course will consider how we can live a 'Good Life' by considering Philosophical ideas about living with the best purpose and in the most meaningful way.
