• "Call No Man Happy Until He Is Dead"

A Philosophy Colloquium event with David Roochnik

Tuesday, January 29, 2013
1pm
10th Floor Large Conference Room (10-100)
73 Tremont St, Boston

Professor David Roochnik of the Boston University Philosophy Department will be discussing the passage in the Nicomachean Ethics where Aristotle cites this famous quote from the wise man Solon: ³Call no man happy until he is dead.² At issue: the meaning of happiness and whether it is an attainable and stable possession. The Colloquium Series invites conversation, so a short talk will proceed into discussion.

All are welcome. The main focus will be Chapter 10 of Book 1, found here. Sponsored by the Philosophy Department. Pizza will be served! For more information, please contact gfried@suffolk.edu.
