What is the Good Life?

This talk is part of the Royal Institute of Philosophy’s 15-Minute Masterclass series, in which eminent philosophers provide an accessible overview of a philosophical topic.

These videos follow the A-Level Philosophy syllabus and as such are prefect for anyone studying philosophy at that level. However they’re also designed to be a useful and engaging resource for anyone desiring to know more about these problems in philosophy.

In this video, Dr Angie Hobbs, Professor of the Public Understanding at the University of Sheffield, presents “What is the Good Life? Revisiting Aristotle’s Function Argument”. This episode is one of a pair of videos on Virtue Ethics, although both can be viewed independently. The other episode, Why Study Aristotle’s Virtue Ethics?, can be found in this playlist and provides a more general introduction on the topic.
