2013-14 Lecture Series: Happiness and the Good Life

Are you happy?
This seemingly easy question resists an easy answer. Happiness is surprisingly difficult to define, much less to attain. Is it purely subjective? Or is happiness objective, so that you could be wrong about whether or not you are happy? What would make you “objectively” happy? Living in accord with your nature? Standing in the proper relation to the divine? Activating certain areas of your brain? All of the above? None? The 2013-2014 Killeen Chair series invites you to join leading philosophers, theologians, and scientists of happiness as we attempt to answer these and other “uneasy” questions in our quest for the good life.


Killeen Chair
 
The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy is a resource that underscores the importance of theology and philosophy in a Catholic liberal arts education and highlights the commitment of St. Norbert College to provide an education that is personally, intellectually and spiritually challenging.
