ADPL 2274 Meaning of Life (Fall: 4 )

Course Description

Happiness is everyone's end. It is not a means to any other end; other things are desired as means to happiness. But what is happiness, how is it attained? Some people are happy, some are not; what makes the difference? A variety of philosophers' answers to this very practical question are explored including Socrates, Aristotle, Aquinas, Freud, Dostoyevsky, Buddha and C.S. Lewis.
