Made for More: Happiness, Friendship & the Good Life

  • St. Thomas More Catholic Center 268 Park Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)

Yale University

Join us for a day-long conference for a deeper exploration into the "Good Life." Prominent speakers will delve into the nature of the human person, contemporary trends in positive psychology, universal human desires, and the search for lasting fulfillment. Above all, the conference will indicate why there is strong reason to believe that the "Good Life" is much more than the psychological well-being implied by present accounts of the human person and why the classical understanding of love and friendship is more relevant today than ever.

Refreshments and dinner will be provided.
