ABOUT THE PROJECT
Our purpose is to engage many different perspectives that relate to how we might consider purpose, engagement, fulfillment, etc. as we advance through different periods of our life. We live in a time characterized by great anxiety. While learning about and understanding anxiety is a reasonable response, giving serious consideration to notions of the good life is another way to resist despair. In this series, we aim to benefit from the insights of many disciplines and to think critically about our individual and collective goals and aspirations relating to the good life.
