The Quest for Happiness

Saturday, May 6, 1:00 pm at the library

The ancient Greek philosophers defined eudaimonia as living a full and excellent life. In this illustrated talk, Plymouth State University Professor of Philosophy, Maria Sanders explores how ideas of happiness have changed in Western civilization through the ages, while comparing and contrasting major concepts of well-being throughout the world. Can money buy happiness? To what extent does engaging in one’s community impact happiness? When worldwide surveys of happiness are conducted, why doesn’t the United States make the top ten?

This program sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
