Philosophy, Suicide, and the Art of Living
This collection of essays addresses the question raised long ago by Socrates: "How should we live?" How should we live so as to enjoy what philosophy calls the "good life," which is a life characterized by what the ancient stoics called "freedom and happiness." This book seeks to call attention to an age-old, but now largely overlooked, tradition in philosophy focused on the "art of living" and seeks, as well, to draw out some of its implications for our present-day, disturbed world which is deeply confused about the meaning of life and what it means to live as a human being should.
