Across centuries, philosophers, poets, musicians, artists, advertisers, and grandmas have been telling us how to live “the good life” and find happiness. This course will explore what life strategies arise when scientists weigh in on this issue. We will explore recent developments in psychology and neuroscience that that test age old wisdoms, and even offer some surprising new strategies.
