CKYC Master’s Tea with Dr.John D.Ho, themed at “Happiness: a perspective borrowed from Economics”, was held successfully on 6th March. Dr. John D. Ho, who teaches at Lingnan University in Hong Kong gave us an insight into happiness using some concepts borrowing from economics.

The discussion went all over the place: we talked about ethical, social, legal and political constraints, spiritual and religious perspectives, hedonism vs. asceticism, risk as a source of Happiness.So, it’s not all just about money or enjoying a budget of one’s needs.

More than 50 students and a few fellows at at the CKYC Fellows Salon to explore the desire for or state of happiness. A lively discussion followed. The Master’s Tea came to an end in a most cordial manner.

蔡繼有書院於三月六日舉辦了院長茶聚,我們有幸邀請了於香港嶺南大學任教的何秩生博士,並與他一起用經濟學來衡量快樂及人生觀。

何秩生博士通過借用經濟學的概念,讓我們了解幸福。何博士並與學生談論了道德,社會,法律和政治限制,精神和宗教觀點,享樂主義與禁慾主義,風險作為幸福的來源。因此我們領略到快樂不只是金錢或滿足個人的欲望。

這次茶聚吸引了超過五十位同學及一些校內的教職員前來蔡繼有書院學人廳參與。最後同學及教職員與何博士進行生動的交流並在一個歡愉的討論氣氛下結束這次活動。
