Slides: Prof. Lucy Arendt’s Last Lecture


Download the presentation slides (pdf)

“Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” were key values according to our Founders. So what would they think, then, of our 24/7 work schedules, the outsized value we place upon work and material consumption today, and the fear that drives many to acquiesce to organizational demands that run counter to their own values and needs? Have our individual rights and freedoms been sacrificed to the organizational value system? These questions were explored by Prof. Lucy Arendt in her “Last Lecture.” Unlike the past 50th Anniversary Last Lectures, hers will not be readily available on video. PBS is broadcasting the presentation as part of its University Place programming at a future date. We have made her slide deck available for those who would like a preview.  Also, see the Inside News article to read more and see a few photos.
