“Now, if happiness is activity in conformity with virtue, it is to be expected that it should conform with the highest virtue…”
Aristotle set the tone for the 27th edition of Aspen Germany’s Leadership Seminar “Philosophy and Practice”, which took place from 20 to 23 February, 2020 at Gut Klostermuehle. The seminar was moderated by Carol Gluck and Leigh Hafrey. They navigated 13 participants from Germany as well as from Austria, Belgium, United Kingdom, Romania, and Montenegro through lively and sometimes controversial discussions on the fundamental questions of human existence, society, and order, and – of course – leadership in many different aspects.
In a protected and confidential setting, far away from the daily strains of politics, finance, law and human rights, culture and the media, the debate along classic and modern texts tackled recurring leitmotifs and core questions, inspiring intense intellectual exchange and a retransfer of abstract examples to hands-on settings.
