There are several different philosophical theories of well-being. Some think that fulfilling one’s desires is what it takes to be well, some believe that doing what makes one happy is what is crucial to well-being, and others claim that there are objective qualities promoting well-being that can be listed. No matter what theory one subscribes to, health and physical fitness can easily fit as a priority in one’s life, which is why I am so concerned with, and interested in, fitness and exercise.

Hobbies or a fun fact(s):

  • I love playing games of all kinds (sports games, board games, video games, etc.).
  • I like to ask and think about philosophical questions concerning the nature of games.
  • I am interested in homes and home improvement.
  • My dissertation is about exploiting systems/rules (AKA “gaming the system”).
