Liberal Philosophy, Happiness, and Affluenza Anonymous

In our most recent episode, "Liberal Philosophy, Happiness, and Affluenza Anonymous," we continue our discussion of the Ancient-Modern debate surrounding the meaning and pursuit of Happiness. In this episode, we investigate the historical and philosophical origins of the Modern, Liberal conception of Happiness and investigate the personal and political consequences. Has the Modern, Liberal account of happiness made us happy?  Or, has it turned us into a culture of addicts and prepared the way for political authoritarianism?  Controversial stuff, no doubt. Enjoy.
