(Originally aired August 8, 2018) Guest: L. Sebastian Purcell, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, SUNY-Cortland. In the quest for happiness, people throughout time have looked to religion and philosophy –  the teachings of Jesus, Buddha, Plato, Confucius. How about Montezuma? Well, he was more warrior than philosopher, but the Aztecs he ruled in the 1500s had a surprisingly grounded view of what it means to lead a good life. It's a view that actually aligns closely with the latest research being done on happiness today.
