QUESTING FOR VALUES: THE HUMANITIES AS A FOUNDATION FOR HAPPINESS is an illustrated 364-page philosophic journey intended to encourage college students and other 'searchers' to examine their own beliefs and values in relation to some enduring wisdom of the ages. Readings are divided into seven units: Examining and Evaluating; Philosophy as the Pursuit of Happiness, by-product of 'Doing the Right Thing'; What About God?; Nature Mysticism and Science; Metaphorical Power of Myths and Stories; Fate, Freedom, and Creativity; and Balancing 'Head' and 'Heart' in our High Tech, Politicized Society.
