An Afternoon with Plato

Living the Good Life

"When harmony is destroyed in living things, their natural state dissolves and pain arises". Philebus 31D

The natural state of man is happiness and bliss.  And yet when we look around we see much in the world that falls short of this ideal.  Are there some fundamental factors that are contributing to this less than ideal state, both globally and at an individual level?  Are there obvious traps that we can easily fall into?  Are there steps we can take to avoid those traps?  We will look to Plato, who lived 2,500 years ago, to discover what he had to say about what it might take to 'live the good life' here and now. 

Open to all.
