Finding My HYGGE – Infinite Ways to Live Well

Searching for the Best Things in Life

Searching for the Best Things in Life 尋找生命中最好的……

人生在世,尋尋覓覓,不同階段有不同渴求,這些追求更彷彿成了我們當下的人生意義。從小到大,我們或被灌輸、或自主建構各種價值觀,各人自有一套處世之道,對事物有輕重取捨之分。究竟我們要怎樣才「活得好」?活得好即是幸福快樂?心理學家及精神科醫生Carl Jung提出「人沒法忍受無意義的人生」,那麼我們如何定義自己的人生?我們找來幾位教授,分享他們怎樣看生命中最好、最重要的東西,也會於最後一節來聽聽你們的故事。

Life is a process of searching for and pursuing our goals in different life stages and, ultimately, for the meaning of life itself. We construct our own personal values and priorities based on what we are told or what we have proactively learned. So how we can live well? Does living well equal pursuing happiness? Psychologist and psychiatrist Carl Jung said, “Man cannot stand a meaningless life”. So, how can we define the meaning of our life? In this series, professors are invited to share their views on the best things in life, and you are invited to share your stories with them during the final session.
