Module Description

This module will examine what some thinkers and philosophers have said about the following topics: how faith, suffering and silence may change your life (Leo Tolstoy, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Gabriel Marcel), what it means to be a person (Marjorie Greene), escaping from solitude (Mary Midgley), and happiness and being content (Aristotle and Anthony Kenny). Relevant handouts will be given and class discussions and questions are encouraged.

Patrick Quinn, PhD, has taught in third-level and adult education for more than 30 years with extensive publications in philosophy and education and a series of programmes on RTÉ radio and television.
