Does pain always end happiness? Is suffering the opposite of wellbeing? Many may think so, given the contemporary vision of the good life. And yet, with the aid of philosophy and reflection,
it is possible to live well even within the constraints of illness. In what ways might philosophy help us see how pain and illness can be part of a meaningful life? Havi Carel (author of Illness) and Mark Vernon (editor of the Art of Living series and author of Wellbeing) discuss these ideas and their new book.
