The Pursuit of Happiness

CSLR launched The Pursuit of Happiness Project in 2010 as a way of putting religion and science in conversation, focusing on the relation between altruistic love and happiness, retrieving some of the rich traditional teachings captured in this ideal, and reconstructing the idea of happiness in light of the new findings of the human and social sciences and of the new liberties of constitutional democracies. These lectures showcase the findings and teachings of this five-year project.
