Emily Esfahani Smith - The Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life That Matters

Upcoming Event
Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Smith, a New Criterion columnist and an editor at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, has written widely about relationships and culture, and in her first book she combines her training in philosophy and applied positive psychology to show us that life can be about more than just achieving personal happiness. A nobler and more sustaining goal, Smith says, is the search for meaning, and she illustrates  how attentiveness to four guiding principles—belonging, purpose, storytelling, and transcendence—can help us achieve richer and more fulfilling lives, a project she chronicles with inspiring examples from communities around the country.
