Vogler is the Stern Professor of Philosophy at the University of Chicago and Principal Investigator for the Templeton Foundation grant on Virtue, Happiness and the Meaning of Life. The 28-month research project aims to answer two vexing questions: 
Why are some people happy, and others not? What makes life good and meaningful?
