Welcome to the first installment in my new series, "The Reasonably Good Life"! It's about using Reason to pursue the Good Life in this complicated world. If you are like me, you are tired of seeing and hearing about all of the craziness in America (and elsewhere). There are so many good things about America, the world, society, and ourselves. Yet, there is a lot of room for improvement as well. This isn't "either/or" but "both/and." As far as we know, we only have one life to live. How shall we live? What is the "Good Life" and how are we to pursue it? I don't pretend to have all of the answers. I'm on this journey too. However, I believe that, by better understanding the nature of our challenges and obstacles, we can use our reasoning abilities to navigate this world more skillfully and effectively. This flexible approach leads to growth, improvement, and greater levels of happiness. I hope you will join me on this journey!
