Why is it so hard to find happiness?

Friends,

DPS meeting
Why is it so hard to find happiness?
Wednesday 6 April from 5-6.30pm in ib3.307 on Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus

This Wednesday 6 April from 5-6.30pm in room ib3.307 on Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus the Deakin Philosophical Society will meet to discuss an Age article by Australian author David Malouf on the search for contentment in the modern world.

You can access Malouf's article, ‘Why is it so hard to find happiness?’, which is an excerpt from the current Quarterly Essay, at http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/society-and-culture/why-is-it-so-hard-to-find-happiness-20110311-1bqmo.html.

The article is brief, and the question of why am I, or, more likely, am I not happy may be front of mind as assessment task due dates loom. So, enjoy.

Kind regards,

Dylan Nickelson,
President, Deakin Philosophical Society.
