Self-Transcendence and the Meaning of LIfe Bookmark and Share

4:30 p.m. @ Wall Boardroom

Jennifer Frey, professor of philosophy at the University of South Carolina and 2018 visiting ethicist of CCU’s Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values, presents a lecture on human perspective and life satisfaction. She argues that self-transcendence, or an individual’s ability to relate to questions beyond his or her own self-concern, is a crucial component in a virtuous and happy life.

Frey holds a Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh; her academic research is focused on questions at the intersection of virtue ethics, philosophy of action and theories of rationality.
