Cele kształcenia:

(tylko po angielsku) It is commonly understood that instinct and good luck are not enough to succeed in any discipline. Yet when it comes to life’s most important decisions, such as how to find a job consistent with one’s talents or who to marry, we often assume we cannot be trained or educated. This class aims to correct for this faulty assumption. We will draw on the sometimes similar, and sometimes strikingly different advice of the ancients and the research of present-day social scientists to answer the question what it means to take charge of one’s own well-being in the modern world – and what habits we can set in place while young to make this possible. The aim of the class will be to equip participants with some basic ideas and tools towards our admirable but very difficult ambitions for happiness in both personal and working lives.

Efekty kształcenia:

(tylko po angielsku) As a result of consistent work undertaken throughout the course, the student should be able to:


1. Engage with ancient wisdom and contemporary research on human happiness.


It is impossible to understand everything about the habits of self-management that make for a happy life, but it is possible to know the key dimensions of well-being identified by scientists and philosophers. It is also possible to develop strategies allowing us to shape our personal habits on reliable knowledge. Lectures, readings and case studies will enable course participants to develop a cognitive foundation as a basis for their own decisions in personal and working lives.


2. Apply the knowledge on well-being to critical self-reflection.


The path towards self-management for a happy life begins with a deliberate reflection on our own habits of thought and behavior. Through reflection on selected texts and interaction with invited guests, course participants will have the chance to critically evaluate their own beliefs and habits contributing to well-being – or its opposite.


3. Develop new habits of self-management fostering well-being.


We now know that knowledge isn’t half the battle – changing our paradigms of thinking and especially our behavior requires a change in habits. With the help of a supportive community, course participants will practice the skills and habits known to increase well-being.
