Acerca del autor

Preston Jones shares his experience while teaching a seminar about The Examined Life, a book by John Kekes. He comments on the way the book guides readers to have a better life by applying self-examination techniques which lead to an improvement in different aspects: goals, values, relationships, and personal interests. He explains what the author means by having a better life and talks about the consequences that daily life actions and decisions have and how self-interest, rightly understood, benefits not only one person but, eventually, a whole society. He closes by referring to common concerns students have regarding the actions to take for their future.
