U of T alumni and friends are invited to a thought-provoking talk on
How Moral Behavior Leads to Happiness by
Associate Professor Andrew Miles
Department of Sociology, University of Toronto Mississauga

Philosophers and religious luminaries have long held that living morally is the key to a happy life. Decades of research indicate that they might be right.

Drawing on his latest research, Professor Andrew Miles reveals how kind deeds promote happiness and explains why living up to any moral principle—be it loyalty to family or respect for authority—might have the same beneficial effect.
