About The Event

 The bestselling author of 'The Righteous Mind' and 'The Coddling of the  American Mind' draws on philosophical wisdom and scientific research to  show how the meaningful life is closer than you think.

The  Happiness Hypothesis is a book about ten Great Ideas. Each chapter is an  attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the  world's civilizations -- to question it in light of what we now know  from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still  apply to our modern lives and illuminate the causes of human  flourishing.

Award-winning psychologist Jonathan Haidt, shows how  a deeper understanding of the world's philosophical wisdom and its  enduring maxims -- like "do unto others as you would have others do unto  you," or "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" -- can enrich and  even transform our lives.

We'll discuss each of these ten great  ideas in terms of intelligibility and applicability, and the bigger  picture idea that happiness comes in part from the inside and in part  from the outside - and which parts help and which hinder.

A link for the PDF and audio-book will be sent to you. Note: the audio-book is about a 12 hour listen, depending on what speed you listen at.

Note:  this venue does NOT offer food, but bringing food and drink is  suggested. Our normal practice is to focus the first half hour or so on  eating and socializing, and we will continue this practice. Please bring  something to share.
