The lecture will be based on work of Alasdair MacIntyre, a Scottish philosopher and one of the great moral thinkers of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. MacIntyre is well known for reintroducing Aristotelian ethics and politics into mainstream philosophy and for emphasizing the role of history in philosophical theorizing. During the lecture we will try to apply philosophical ideas to answer the practical question “Why am I here?”
