Texts and discussion at the master-class will evolve around parts of Katja Vogts recent book “Desiring the Good” (Oxford University Press, 2017) and several published and unpublished papers by Monika Betzler addressing the relevance of personal projects centering on questions like “what is a good human life?” or “how do our actions as well as our mid- and long-term projects contribute to leading a good life?”

The master-class has a pre-read format. Texts will be made available 1 month before the master-class. Students will prepare the texts. Additionally, each will prepare one 10-15 talks explicating a philosophical question for one of the texts in order to start discussion.
