A.C. Grayling: what makes a great life?

The philosopher and author of more than 30 books on what it means to lead a fulfilling life

Philosophy's idea of a good life is not about piety and prayer, but about leading a fulfilling and flourishing existence, says Professor A.C. Grayling.

Speaking at the Emirates Airline Literature Festival, the prolific author and master of New College of the Humanities says ideas of self-understanding, reason and diversity first inspired by Socrates are at the heart of a good life.
