Segment 2 & 3 – True Friendship: Where Virtue Becomes Happiness

“Following Aristotle’s teachings on the unbreakable connection between happiness and virtuous living, Cuddeback sees friendship at the very center of the human drama. Although there are different kinds of friendship, the deepest kind can only be achieved through a life of virtue, and this is where the human person comes most fully alive. True Friendship offers simple yet rich advice on how to tap into this reality in our own lives. Such friendship demands much of us, but it gives us even more, as individuals and as a society.” …

John Cuddeback, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy at Christendom College, where he has taught since 1997. He lectures widely on topics including virtue, fatherhood, friendship, and the household. He has published articles in Nova et VeteraQuaestiones Disputatae, and other academic journals, along with a number of book chapters. In his blog Life-Craft.org, he applies ancient wisdom to life today.
