Philosophies Of Happiness (eBook)
A Comparative Introduction To The Flourishing Life
de Diana Lobel
Sobre o livro
Philosophies of Happiness provides a rich spectrum of arguments for a theory of happiness as flourishing, offering a global, cross-cultural, and interdisciplinary perspective on how to create a vital, fulfilling, and significant life. Diana Lobel brings together perspectives from a broad range of philosophical traditions--Eastern and Western, ancient and contemporary--to show that, while thick descriptions of happiness differ widely, certain themes resonate across texts from different places and times, suggesting core features of a happy life. Happiness is the healthy and flourishing condition of the whole human being, and we experience the most complete happiness when we realize our potential through creative engagement.
