A Conversation between Sean Fitzpatrick and Emily Esfahani Smith
What's more vital to living a good life than being happy? According to Emily Esfahani Smith, it's meaning. How do we create meaning in our lives? How do we identify what makes life worth living? And where does happiness ultimately fit into all of this?
This benefit lecture illuminates Smith's book, The Power of Meaning by looking at the principles of belonging, purpose, storytelling and transcendence and how they combine in a meaningful life.
One lecture, instant access by MP3 download, recorded in the fall of 2017.
