148—Being Is Higher Than Not Being—Christopher Mirus


Nov 18, 2022

Christopher V. Mirus, your host’s older brother, is a philosophy
professor on the College of Dallas, and writer of the brand new e book
Being Is Higher Than Not Being: The Metaphysics of Goodness and
Magnificence in Aristotle
. On this episode he discusses being a
thinker within the Aristotelian custom, compares Aristotle’s
mental and pedagogical method with Plato’s, and touches on
some themes from his e book.

How does Aristotle establish goodness with the flexibility to be
contemplated – even within the sphere of ethics? What’s the relation
between friendship and contemplation? How can we name “lovely”
issues as completely different as a morally virtuous human motion, the components
of animals, the orbits of the heavenly spheres, and God Himself?
What does Aristotle imply when he says that being is healthier than not
being?
