Join Notre Dame professors Meghan Sullivan and Paul Blaschko to discuss their recent book The Good Life Method. Meghan and Paul teach an influential undergraduate course, God and the Good Life, in which they wrestle with the questions about how to live and what makes life meaningful. Based on these teachings, The Good Life Method invites us to work through issues like what justifies our beliefs, whether we should practice a religion, and what sacrifices we should make for others.

 

Meghan Sullivan is the Wilsey Family Collegiate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame and serves as Director of the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study. Her research tends to focus on philosophical problems concerning time, modality, rational planning, value theory, and religious belief (and sometimes all five at once). She has published work in many leading philosophy journals, including NousEthics and Philosophical Studies. Her first book — Time Biases — came out with Oxford University Press in summer 2018.

She is now writing a monograph on the role love plays in grounding moral, political and religious reasoning.  It is tentatively entitled Agapism: Moral Responsibility and Our Inner Lives. And with Paul Blaschko, she has just finished a book on virtue ethics based on the God and the Good Life project. It is called The Good Life Method and will be released nationwide through Penguin Press in January 2022.

 

Paul Blaschko is an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Notre Dame. He is a philosopher and his primary areas of interest are epistemology and action theory. His research focuses on the nature and normative dimensions of deliberative belief formation, but he’s also interested in theories of practical reason and value, the philosophy of religion, and medieval philosophy.

Paul is committed to making philosophy publicly accessible and relevant, and—in his teaching—he emphasizes innovative course design, practical relevance, intellectual formation, and classroom transparency. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame in January of 2019.
