Yale Abstract

  1. In this lecture, Professor Kagan invites students to pose the question of how one should live life knowing that it will certainly end in death.
  2. He also explores the issue of how we should set our goals and how we should go about achieving them, bearing in mind the time constraints.
  3. Other questions raised are how this ultimately affects the quality of our work and our accomplishments, as well as how we decide what is worth doing in life.
