On Thursday July 11 and Friday July 12, 2002 The Institute for the Psychological Sciences will sponsor a conference entitled: "The Person, The Family and The Flourishing Life: A Psychological and Sociological Perspective". Reflecting the dignity of the human person and the needs of our secular society, the focus of this conference will be on Positive Psychology, which examines the components of health and goodness in the hope of facilitating a full, happy life rather than disease and disorder.

Hadley Arkes, Ph.D., Edward N. Ney Professor of Jurisprudence and American Institutions at Amherst University, will address the topic "Politics: an Irreducible Moral Enterprise".
