Well-being, Time and Sustainability: Epicurus or Aristotle? This seminar addresses two key questions about sustainability.

Firstly, is it is possible to maintain or improve well-being without increasing consumption? Then, secondly, is it possible to extend the time-horizon of individuals and institutions so that the interests of future persons can be better made to count in current choices? The talk will approach answers from the contrasting perspectives of Philosophers Aristotle and Epicurus. Delivered by Professor John O'Neill, University of Manchester.
