Caffeinated Philosophy of Happiness

This Wednesday (so either tomorrow or today, depending on your time zone) the Auburn Philosophy Club will be hosting a public panel on happiness at 5:00 at Mama Mocha’s coffeeshop (414 S. Gay St.); details here. My contribution will be to argue that Kant’s arguments against happiness-focused theories of morality, while they may work against some versions of that approach, don’t succeed against the ancient Greek versions (as represented, e.g., by Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and the Stoics).

    Will that be recorded? Your topic sounds interesting and I wish I could somehow watch or read what you’re going to say

    Kind of raises the question what Kant would have thought about caffeine…

      Well, at least we know that Voltaire approved of it.
