The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Bertrand Russell

What is the good life?

As with all animals, we are born, some of us reproduce, and we all eventually die. Unlike other animals, we worry about where our lives are going. Many of us can make important choices, which influence how our lives turn out. Within limits, we can choose to work or be idle; we can choose whom to befriend, whether to have children, and what kind of job or career we follow.

Throughout history, human beings have asked themselves the question of what is the best way to live. What makes life worthwhile? What, if anything, makes life meaningful? These questions raise further questions of how we should treat others. Humanists believe that we have an obligation to make responsible and informed choices to help our lives and the lives of others go in a worthwhile and fulfilling direction.
