Goals


"A yes, a no, a straight line, a goal," was Nietzsche's "formula" of happiness...

Not that it worked out all that well for him - but you'll do better, you're less misanthropic and more committed to human flourishing for all. And you've learned to include, with your yeses and your noes, a possibly (better than maybe) and an I don't know.  

"Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact." Possibly. 

So, good luck with your goals! Looking forward to seeing some of you in Bioethics, Happiness, Atheism, or (if you want to discuss an Independent Readings course) you name it.

  1. P.S. Some think it's better to live without a goal, but that's not as easy as it sounds. Maybe it's their goal?
