Section 17, Group 2
Today in class we had a large portion of our group missing. Due to this our discussion was not as in-depth as it would usually be. Nevertheless, the show went on and we began the discussion by voicing our opinions on Aristotle's definition of happiness. Most of the group discerned that our view of happiness is defined by the little moments of pleasure or satisfaction. However, Dr. Oliver countered with the notion of happiness being defined not within oneself, but by an outside perspective of how much good you do in the world. This would end our short, but insightful, discussion for the day.
