Description

The College of Liberal Arts' University Forum lecture series presents Rethinking Eudaimonism in Greek and Neo-Aristotelian Ethics a talk by Iakovos Vasiliou, executive officer and professor, Philosophy Department, City University of New York Graduate Center. 

Professor Vasiliou aims to raise puzzles about eudaimonism, or well-being, as it is attributed to the classical Greek philosophers and as it has been taken up in contemporary philosophical discussions. The concept of Eudaimonia for the ancient Greeks is asked to play two roles: as an account of well-being and as a practical principle. He will argue that these two roles are in greater tension with one another than scholars and philosophers have appreciated.
