Aristotle’s Way

Published on 3 May 2018

<p><b>What do you and an ancient philosopher have in common? It turns out much more than you might think…</b></p><p>Aristotle was an extraordinary thinker, perhaps the greatest in history. Yet he was preoccupied by an ordinary question: how to be happy. His deepest belief was that we can all be happy in a meaningful, sustained way – and he led by example.</p><p>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 <i>Odyssey</i> from your <i>Iliad</i>. In ten practical lessons we come to understand more about our own characters and how to make good decisions. We learn how to do well in an interview, how to choose a partner and life-long friends, and how to face death or bereavement.</p><p>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.</p><p>This is advice that won’t go out of fashion.</p>
