Join The Second Floor (T2F) for an introduction to the ancient Greek scholar, teacher, and philosopher, Aristole and his theory of the good life.
This edition of Philosophy 101 will begin with a brief overview of Aristotle’s background and his most important ideas, including well-being, the good life, the ideal society, balance, the structure of the world, and contemplation. When Aristotle speaks of the good life as the happy life, he does not merely refer to happiness, amusement, or contentment. Our speaker for the evening, Anthony Galli, will discuss popular conceptions of pleasure, wealth, honor, and virtue and Aristotle’s reasoning about how humans can live ‘the good life’.
Anthony has a Bachelors degree in Psychology from Central Connecticut State University and has taken several philosophy courses, in addition to independent study. He has worked in the fields of social service, teaching, and media. He is a musician and part-time actor.
