The good life
In this subject we will explore the question: What is a good life? A simple question – that offers a host of different answers. Numerous self-help books and online life guides offer quick fixes – but in this subject we take our time to reflect and test what the concept of a good life means to each of us.
In each lesson we will explore a new theme and we look for answers to questions like: Why choose to be a career person? How important are personal relationships in our life? What is slow living? Do we need religion in our lives? Is a healthy body necessary to have a good life, and when does the focus on health become a hindrance to happiness?
During the semester we will meet people with strong beliefs on what a good life entails and we will reflect on the different perspectives offered to us and discuss and explore our own personal recipies of the good life.
