Book Review: The Pursuit of Human Well-Being - The Untold Global History.

Abstract


It’s hard enough to summarise an individual’s diverse experiences of wellbeing coherently, let alone summarise a nation. It’s a whole lot harder to offer comprehensive coverage of objective and subjective wellbeing worldwide, and harder still to combine this with historical depth and detailed cultural analysis. This collection therefore wins the prize for being the most ambitious collection on wellbeing to date.

Keywords


Philosophy, happiness, meaning, psychology
