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 Michael Gorman's "What is the role of friendship in human flourishing", a video lecture by Tahera Qutbuddin, "Imam Ali's Wisdoms: A Sage for Our Times" and a 2-part series by Candace Vogler, "Higher Education in the Wider Context".
