January 26: What Is a Good Life?

For as long as philosophy has existed, human beings have sought to understand the nature of truth, reason, value, reality, and existence. What better time than now to investigate fundamental questions about ourselves and our relationships to each other? Rice University philosopher professor Gwen Bradford will discuss what makes for a flourishing life and the values arising from the exercise of our uniquely human capacities.

Gwen Bradford is an associate professor of philosophy at Rice University, where she specializes in value theory and normative ethics within the field of moral philosophy. Her book Achievement (Oxford University Press, 2015) was awarded the 2017 American Philosophical Association Book Prize. Professor Bradford was the 2019 recipient of the Duncan Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement at Rice University. Recent projects focus on uniqueness, perfectionism, and ill-being.
