Psychological Richness and the Good Life

Thursday, January 6 from 5:30 – 7:00pm via Zoom

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Middlebury College Professor Lorraine Besser to talk about psychological richness and the good life. What makes for a good life? When we think of a good life, most of us tend to think about feelings of happiness, or maybe about living a life with meaning and purpose. We don’t often think about interesting experiences as contributing to the good life, but perhaps we should. Interesting experiences contribute to what we can describe as a “psychologically rich life”. In this presentation, philosopher Lorraine Besser will explore the concept of psychological richness and discuss recent empirical research affirming it as a dimension of the good life. Registration is $18 in advance.
