Mon. March 4, 6:30PM
An evening with philosopher Michaël Vlerick: how do we go from selfish genes to the art of a freer life?
Why does criticism linger longer than a compliment? Why do we imagine countless doomsday scenarios for the future? Why are we not happier, even when objectively we have every reason to be?
These are so many questions studied by science philosopher Michael Vlerick in his latest book - Waarom we niet gelukkiger zijn* (Lannoo, 2024).
Join us on March 4, as Michael Vlerick takes us on a captivating journey through the realms of genetics, psychology, and philosophy, culminating in a discussion of meditation and the science of happiness.
The conference will be followed by a book signing session of Waarom we niet gelukkiger zijn* by Michaël Vlerick (Lannoo, 2024).
