CLASS 1047 – HAPPINESS: WHAT, WHY, HOW, WHEN, WHERE?
“Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Think about it – what huge part of life have you spent trying to find happiness, or even defining what it would look like? Interesting that “life” and “liberty” are seen as rights that should be guaranteed, but the best we can hope for happiness is the ability to chase after it. DR. IGNACIO GÖTZ has more degrees, professorial experience, knowledge, and published works than most of us will ever dream of. He taught a class on Happiness at Hofstra University for 29 years and authored Conceptions of Happiness in 2010. Join him for a discussion that is guaranteed to be challenging and fascinating. Maybe “the secret” is in there somewhere! Monday, Feb 18.
