‘MTSU On the Record’ delves into philosophy of happiness (+VIDEO)

A recent edition of the “MTSU On the Record” radio program focused on how we define and pursue happiness.

Dr. Phil Oliver

Host Gina Logue’s interview with Dr. Phil Oliver, an MTSU philosophy professor, aired in August on WMOT-FM (89.5 and ). You can listen to their conversation here.

Oliver teaches a course titled “The Philosophy of Happiness,” which will concentrate during the fall 2013 semester on the connection between happiness and the meaning of life.

Students will discuss whether it is necessary to live a life of higher ethical purpose to be happy or whether physical pursuits and creature comforts are sufficient, as well as other issues.
