Six Myths about the Good Life targets the values that are worth targeting inside our lives, a subject central from what has been called Philosophy of Life. Most of us have ideas about the good life. We think that pleasure makes life better. You want to be happy. We believe achievements change lives. There is certainly something to all or any these basic ideas, but if taken and generally each of them lose out on something simply. Six Myths about the Good Life explores what they miss and, in the process, provides sense of just what a good life can be.
