What is the good life? Philip is joined in the studio by the commentators Robert Skidelsky, Owen Jones and Jamie Whyte, the classicist, Edith Hall, the philosopher, Mark Vernon and the Benedictine Monk, Father Bede Hill to discuss the question. In this discussion Philip Dodd and his guests consider how an idea that began with Aristotle as an ethical quest can have evolved in the 21st century into unbridled consumerism.
