Success and the Good Life

March 14, 2018 at 7:00pm / Diamond 122

A conversation on happiness, achievement, and faith

Colby College

What is the good life? And does this make us happy? Dr. Lindsay Whaley, Professor of Classics and Linguistics at Dartmouth College, will be in dialogue with Dr. Aaron Hanlon, Assistant Professor of English at Colby College on differing conceptions of the good life, and how their own worldviews and religious backgrounds have informed the way they think about meaning, purpose, and success. The Forum is co-sponsored by the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, Counseling Services, the Department of Psychology, the Department of Religious Studies, Colby InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and the Multifaith Council.
