Interactive video lesson plan for: 19. Immortality Part II; The value of life, Part I

Activity overview:

Death (PHIL 176)

The lecture begins with further exploration of the question of whether it is desirable to live forever under the right circumstances, and then turns to consideration of some alternative theories of the nature of well-being. What makes a life worth living? One popular theory is hedonism, but the thought experiment of being on an "experience machine" suggests that this view may be inadequate.
