Location: UNC Charlotte Center City, 320 E 9th Street, Charlotte, NC 28202
Commodore Classroom An evening with VU Centennial Professor of Philosophy John Lachs
Lecture: "Living Joyously"
Our relation to the past is too often ruined by guilt, regrets and memories of failure. Our relation to the future is too often one of longing, worry and expectations that cannot be met. These attitudes to the past and the future make life sadly unsatisfactory. They destroy enjoyment of the vibrant glory of existence and make us lose sight of what in life is significant. To live well, we must live without regrets and learn to embrace the present moment for the joys it brings.
