From ancient civilizations to the modern day, armchair philosophers have debated the questions: "What is happiness?" and "How can we achieve it?" In this beautifully illustrated guide, Arlene Unger takes a meandering journey through the rich philosophical landscape of contentment, by way of Norse mythology, Persian symbolism, Scandinavian lifestyle, Buddhist teachings, and Aristotle's theories. By exploring the many different facets of research and thinking on happiness, not only will we better understand this elusive concept, but we will also be equipped with practical ways to improve our personal wellbeing.
