Edith Hall: Aristotle's Way: How Ancient Wisdom Can Change Your Life

Sat 24 Nov / Quarterhouse

Aristotle was an extraordinary thinker, perhaps the greatest in history. His deepest belief was that we can all be happy in a meaningful, sustained way - and he led by example.

In this handbook to his timeless teachings, professor Edith Hall shows how ancient thinking is precisely what we need today, even if you don't know your Odyssey from your Illiad.

Life deals the same challenges - in Ancient Greece or the modern world. Aristotle's way is not to apply rules - it's about engaging with the texture of existence and striding purposefully towards a life well lived.
