Searching for happiness is overrated, learn to find meaning instead
There is a persistent myth in our culture that in order to lead a fulfilling life we must pursue happiness at all times. In her groundbreaking work, Emily
Esfahani Smith explains that it is actually the search for meaning that will bring fulfilment. She argues that meaning is all around us in vast untapped
resources, and that the key is finding it in the right here, right now. Her inspiring TED Talk on the same topic has been viewed over a million times.
To explore how we can change our lives for the better, she draws on the latest research in psychology, sociology, philosophy and neuroscience, as
well as insights from figures in literature and history such as George Eliot, Viktor Frankl, Aristotle and the Buddha. She shows us how cultivating
connections to others, identifying and working toward a purpose, telling stories about our place in the world, and seeking out mystery, can
immeasurably deepen our lives. To do this she visits remarkable people and places, such as a tight-knit fishing village in the Chesapeake Bay, a dinner
where young people gather to share their experiences of profound loss, and a drug kingpin who finds his purpose in helping people get fit. She
explores how we might begin to build a culture that leaves space for introspection and awe, cultivates a sense of community, and imbues our lives with
meaning.
