By fostering intensive collaboration between philosophers, religious thinkers, and psychologists, we 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. Recent posts include visiting scholar Stephen Brock's talk "Aquinas and the Life of the Mind, notes (via tweets) from our June summer seminar and working group meeting, and a profile of Candace Vogler, "Being Well”.
