The Rotman Institute of Philosophy presents: Happiness and Well-Being Library Lecture Series

Philosophers have been puzzling over the nature of happiness for thousands of year. Somewhat surprisingly few have deigned to reflect on the nature of children’s happiness. In this presentation, I will seek to remedy this oversight by offering some philosophical thoughts on the nature of children’s well-being.
