By fostering intensive collaboration between philosophers, religious thinkers, and psychologists, we will investigate whether self-transcendence helps to make ordinary cultivation and exercise of virtue a source of deep happiness and meaning in human life.

Our blog,, features converstions, video, audio, and other discussions about and with our scholars' research into self-transcendence, virtue, and happiness. Latest posts include an exploration of virtue and representation, "Kerry James Marshall's School of Beauty" by Jaime Hovey, and a 3-part series by Jennifer A. Frey,  "Anscombe on Belief."
