Presented by Geelong Grammar School Institute of Positive Education.

The quest for meaning is a long-time companion of the human condition. In fact, it may be as old as human culture itself.

In this Insight Series presentation, Founder and Director of the Center for Meaning and Purpose, Dr. Steger, examines how, over the ages, psychology has framed the question of “what is the meaning of life” in distinctly personal terms, and how it has used rigorous scientific research to forge a deep body of knowledge about the contributions meaning and purpose make to health, relationships, happiness, self-understanding, and even longevity.

No question that has puzzled us for scores of centuries has an easy answer. As such, we are honoured to have this opportunity to hear and learn from esteemed researcher and author, Dr. Steger, about ways we can embrace and answer these questions in our own lives.
