CPNSS Research Associate, and Professor of Economics at the Open University, Paul Anand has published a new book: Happiness
In this book, Professor Anand seeks to answer the following question: what is human happiness and how we can promote it? In answering this, the book draws upon research from economics, psychology, and philosophy, as well as a range of other disciplines, to outline a new paradigm in which human flourishing plays a central role in the assessment of national and global progress.
Discussing wide-ranging aspects, from parenting, decent employment, friendship, education, and health in old age, through to money, autonomy, and fairness, as well as personal strategies and governmental polices used in the pursuit of happiness, Happiness Explained offers a sciencebased understanding of human flourishing.
