At this workshop, Tasia Scrutton and Mark Wynn will present and discuss some of the findings from their project on: Mental suffering, the experience of beauty and well-being. Some key questions addressed in the project are: what is the relationship between depression (and recovery from depression) and the experience of beauty? What are the implications for therapeutic practice? What is the significance of experience of beauty for spiritual well-being? How do theological and philosophical approaches to these questions compare with empirical perspectives?
The workshop is open to anyone with an interest in issues of mental health and spiritual well-being. The project has been funded by the Department of Philosophy, St Louis University, and the John Templeton Foundation. For more information, see: http://www.happinessandwellbeing.org/wynn
