March 11 lecture highlights the nature of happiness

4:55 p.m., March 3, 2004--A lecture at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 11, in 318 Gore Hall will explore the nature, history and meaning of the pursuit of happiness.

Titled “The Pursuit of Happiness: A Historical Account,” the free lecture features Phi Beta Kappa visiting scholar Alan Charles Kors.

An award-winning teacher, Kors is a professor of European intellectual history at the University of Pennsylvania. He also is editor-in-chief of the four-volume “Oxford Encyclopedia of the Enlightenment” and the author of several books, including: “Witchcraft in Europe, 1100-1700,” “Anticipations of the Enlightenment in England, France and Germany,” “Atheism in France, 1650-1729, Volume One: The Orthodox Sources of Disbelief” and “The Shadow University: The Betrayal of Liberty on America’s Campuses.”

The lecture, which is open to the public, is sponsored by the Delaware chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. For more information, call Joel Best, sociology chairperson, at 831-2581.
