History and Moral Knowledge

This talk considers the relationship between a few modern ethical theories and the ancient question of how one should live. I want to explore the suggestion (advanced by Bernard Williams and others) that because these theories (and theories generally) are unsatisfying vis a vis this question we would do well to look to alternative resources in our attempts to answer it, perhaps in a special way to the rich narratives of history, to Aristotle's "completed lives."
