Summary

Before the good life was reduced to a slew of prescriptions and ten-step plans, philosophers offered answers to fundamental questions about who we are and what makes life worth living. In Examined Lives, James Miller returns to this vibrant tradition with short, lively biographies of twelve famous philosophers. With a flair for paradox and rich anecdote, Miller confirms the continuing relevance of philosophy today-and explores the most urgent questions about what it means to live a good life.
