Celebration of World Philosophy Day: “Philosophy and the Science of Happiness”
Different online activities were held on the occasion of the celebration of World Philosophy Day, with the participation of New Acropolis Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Dominican Republic and Mexico.
From Mexico, the talk Philosophy and Science of Happiness was presented, showing how, from both perspectives, happiness has a prevailing interest for humankind. In this lecture we asked ourselves: What is happiness and how can we be happy? In order to find answers, several scientific investigations by Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky and Dr. Martin Seligman were presented, as well as the teachings of the Stoic philosophers Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus.
