13th Annual Conference: Steps to Mass Flourishing: Social Values and Individual Experience

Monday, November 9, 2015
Columbia University, New York, NY

While the Center's last two conferences focused on the significant losses of indigenous innovation and thus human flourishing in much of the West, the 13th annual conference -- “Steps to Mass Flourishing: Social Values and Individual Experience” -- focused on what the United States and others can do to increase indigenous innovation. Two dozen scholars and experts participated in the daylong conference, which was held at Columbia University’s Casa Italiana and consisted of five sessions, a roundtable, a luncheon speech by Peter Thiel, and a dinner speech by Peter Jungen.
