Over 250 young adults this month will be confronted with the fundamental question of human existence: What is the meaning of life? College students in the United States, England, and China will explore how the world’s major traditions, both religious and nonreligious, answer the question.
The comparative study is through the course Life Worth Living, developed by the Yale Center for Faith and Culture at YDS. The class outlines the values of different traditions and ideologies through foundational texts and guest lecturers. The goal is for students to develop skills in the life-long process of reflecting on, and discerning, the good life.
