What does loneliness tell us?"Be it chronic or acute, slight or significant, loneliness is proof of our relational design. At the core of our being is this truth--we are designed for and defined by our relationships," former pastors Plass and Cofield write. "We were born with a relentless longing to participate in the lives of others. Fundamentally, we are relational souls."
Drawing on the latest research in philosophy, psychology, and the social sciences, A Philosophy of Loneliness explores the different kinds of loneliness and examines the psychological and social characteristics that dispose people to them. Svendsen looks at the importance of friendship and love, and he examines how loneliness can impact our quality of life and affect our physical and mental health

Loneliness is a painful awareness that one’s social relationships are less numerous or meaningful than one desires. Loneliness does not necessarily coincide with aloneness. To feel lonely is to feel excluded from a group, unloved by those surrounding oneself, unable to share one’s private concerns, or alienated from those in one’s surroundings. In 2018, CIGNA conducted a survey of more than 20,000 U.S. adults and found that (a) roughly 54% are lonely and (b) Generation Z (adults ages 18-22) is the loneliest generation. This seminar will examine the latest research on loneliness and ways to cope with loneliness. Furthermore, as a course that introduces the student to the college experience, it strives to build a learning community, sharpen critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, enhance effective communication through writing assignments and oral presentations, improve information literacy, apply the University’s Christian mission, and hone life-management skills, including a proactive approach to lifelong learning.
