Program Detail - The Meaning of Life: A Trip to New York City

The Meaning of Life: A Trip to New York City

Why does the world exist? What’s the meaning of life? Who am I? What are the best things in life? How do I avoid wasting my life? What does it mean to live well? These are some of the most important questions anyone can ask, and in this course we will explore them together. To help us do that, we will draw on the resources of one of the best cities in the world – New York City. During our time in New York, we will have conversations with fascinating people, including artists, philosophers, wine-makers, aid workers, theologians, entrepreneurs, scholars, etc. We will experience some of the world’s best art and architecture. We will discover and explore New York City itself. And we will reflect on life’s deepest and most important questions. If this sounds like a good way to spend a month, consider joining us.
