Cardinal Blase J. Cupich will deliver the Keynote Address for the October 13-14 Capstone Conference for the project Virtue, Happiness, & the Meaning of Life, which will feature discussions with the philosophers, religious thinkers, and psychologists who have been working together to investigate whether self-transcendence helps to make ordinary cultivation and exercise of virtue a source of deep happiness and meaning in human life.

The President of the University of Chicago, Robert.J. Zimmer, will provide introductory remarks. A reception will follow Cardinal Cupich's talk.

This event is presented by the Virtue, Happiness, and the Meaning of Life Project, made possible by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation, and is co-sponsored by The Chicago Center for Practical Wisdom, the Committee on Social Thought, the Lumen Christi Institute, the Martin Marty Center, the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, the University of Chicago Department of Philosophy, the University of Chicago Divinity School, and the University of Chicago Division of Humanities.
