ANCIENT CONCEPTIONS OF HAPPINESS

DEPARTMENTS OF PHILOSOPHY, UNIVERSITY OF ST ANDREWS

Saturday 12 May to Sunday 13 May, 2012 
Edgecliffe, The Scores 
Room 104


This conference is meant to highlight the great importance that eudaimonia (commonly translated as 'happiness'), 
as variously construed, held for the ancient Greeks and Romans. 

In turn, this conference seeks to move its participants to compare and contrast ancient and modern conceptions of eudaimonia.
