The Enigma of Happiness

BY ANDY WIBLE
@ VOL 14 ON SEP 15, 2018

The Enigma of Happiness - Andy Wible   Proving the principle that those who cannot do, teach, Andy's talk will be on happiness. It will look at what it is, explore why we all want it, and discuss several philosophical conundrums around it. Even though happiness will always be a bit of a mystery, examining these issues will hopefully help us to have a more fulfilling life.


Andy Wible is a philosophy professor at Muskegon Community College. He enjoys traveling, running, writing, socializing, and playing golf. He was able to bring together two of his favorite things, golf and philosophy, in a book called Golf and Philosophy: Lessons from the Links a few years ago. He is best known locally for being married to Oliver Songlingco.
