Ah, holidays

MelbournePhilosopher

I missed posting on Saturday and Sunday, but that's what holidays are for. A little mental regeneration time. But even my downtime has had quite a bit of philosophy in it!

On Saturday, I went to episode two of the lecture series at NGV, this time concentrating on the standpoints of Aristotle. Rather than pass judgement, I will simply pose a series of related questions.

1.) Can thinking well make us happier?
2.) Is happiness the end goal of all other actions?
3.) If everything nothing happens for no purpose, then for what purpose are we happy?
4.) What is it good in life to hope for?
5.) Does moderation make us always happier than an extreme?
6.) Can we be happy if we do not have more than others?
7.) The carrot or the stick?
8.) Is there only one kind of happiness?
9.) Is happiness a momentary state of being, or can it be long-lasting, even permanent?

Cheers,
-MP
