Video: How to be good and seek virtue

How can we be more virtuous? Can we teach our children virtue? And what about politicians? Well, the latter is probably the most difficult, but continuing our current cycle of cynicism isn’t exactly helping us out either…

Irani Professor of Philosophy at the City College of New York and author of many books, including How to Be a Stoic: Using Ancient Philosophy to Live a Modern Life and, most recently, How to Be Good: What Socrates Can Teach Us About the Art of Living Well.
