Translations vary, of course, but many agree that this term means wellbeing, happiness, or perhaps more precisely, human flourishing. Aristotle once described it as “doing and living well.” Happiness, in this sense, is an ongoing and morally rich pursuit, not to be confused with fleeting day-to-day happiness.
This symposium seeks to tease out what it means to be happy in the modern age. This topic is relevant to all members of our campus, as we all figure out how we can best BREW, as our students discern vocation, as our faculty and staff struggle to balance their lives, and as we seek fulfillment, accomplishment and joy during our short time on earth.
Let us join together to unravel what it means to live the good life.
