The Search for Happiness
Sigmund Freud once said that “happiness is something essentially subjective.” His view is commonplace today. This series will examine that claim: is happiness in the eye of the beholder? If not, what would objective happiness be? And how can one be happy given the vicissitudes of life? In Sophocles’ great play about a very unhappy man, Oedipus, the chorus ends that play with the judgment that we can count no one happy until they are dead. Only then can a sure claim be made that there has been a happy life. Surely it is odd that only in death can one judge someone to have lived a happy life.

 
The Agora Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit endeavor, providing seminars and other educational opportunities to those who are busy with careers, families, and daily responsibilities yet are seeking to further their education without the commitments a return to school would involve. The goal of these offerings is to provide an understanding of the ideas that shape civilizations.
