Il guerriero felice

Corrado Petrocelli


Aristoteles demonstrates that ‘living well’ and ‘doing well’ are two aspects of the single concept of eudaimonia, which is performed above all in the public sphere. The search for a good common life is evident immediately after the Athenians’ defeat in Sicily, when they were able to transform a difficult moment into a new opportunity: we can consider this episode to be at the root of our concept of ‘resilience’.
