Classics Revisited: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Prof. Michael Sugrue
Professor of History at Ave Maria University, BA in History from the University of Chicago, M.A. and Ph.D. from Columbia University
Are people better off with happiness than with truth? What if individual happiness were defined as the ability to satisfy personal needs and success as a society equated with economic growth and prosperity? Enter a dystopian future created by Aldous Huxely centered around the Utilitarian philosophy in Brave New World. Professor Michael Sugrue, Ph.D. will break apart this classic and dive into a discussion of what a society looks like when it is pleasure based and if that leads to a meaningful life. A live Q&A with the professor will follow the lecture of this great novel!
