The Value of Life: the Concept of good and its Relation to Value of Life in the Western Philosophy
- Studying the value of life is one of the functions of philosophy. So, it can be seen that there are so much values of life in different philosophical systems of the Western philosophy. Some philosophical systems regarded happiness as the value of life. But for some, harmonious life is valuable. And for Epicurus trying to gain pleasure of intellectual life is the value of life whereas existentialists regarded as freedom, creativity, and authenticity. Nevertheless, the Western value of life generally can be seen that it includes moral goodness, spiritual goodness and intellectual goodness, although each philosophical system cannot provide the complete value of life.
