Fifth Annual Landon Saunders' Lecture

Fifth Annual Landon Saunders’ Lecture, The Human Being: The Nexus of the World and Faith, “Meanings and Dimensions of Flourishing: A Programmatic Sketch”

When: June 9, 2021, 2:45 pm - Wednesday

Where: Shamblin Theater

Session 2

Session Abstract

A major challenge in the current research about human flourishing – about the good life, happiness, well-being, the true life and other designations under which the topic is discussed – is lack of agreement on what we mean by “flourishing.”  The purpose of this lecture is (1) to propose a formal model of flourishing, a tripartite structure of flourishing life (life being led well, life going well, and life feeling as it should), and (2) to suggest how these three dimensions of flourishing are integrated in one Christian account of flourishing, namely that of the Apostle Paul.
