“If love is so central to the good life, can philosophical reflection make us better at it, the way philosophy aims to improve other virtues?” (The Good Life Method, p. 130) What are the kinds of love, and how can we tell if we’re dealing with the good kind(s)? If love is a virtue we cultivate by working on our capacities for attention, how do we improve?

Join Prof. Meghan Sullivan (University of Notre Dame) for dinner and an interactive workshop on love, friendship, and practicing philosophy as a way of life. This workshop draws from Prof. Sullivan’s “God and the Good Life” blockbuster course at the University of Notre Dame, and her “soulcraft” approach to philosophical praxis in her book, God and the Good Life. Prof. Sullivan will also be giving a public lecture on “God and the Good Life: Big Questions of Faith, Flourishing, and Meaning,” on November 9th (Thursday).

This event is open to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students at Cornell University. Advance registration required—space is limited, so sign up soon!
