Franklin The Psychology of Happiness brings together a wide array of psychological theory and research supporting Aristotles fulfilment view of happiness. FORMAT Paperback LANGUAGE English CONDITION Brand New Publisher Description When Thomas Jefferson placed the pursuit of happiness along with life and liberty in The Declaration of Independence he was most likely referring to Aristotles concept of happiness, or eudaimonia. Eudaimonia is not about good feelings but rather the fulfilment of human potentials. Fulfilment is made possible by virtue; the moderation of desire and emotion by reason. The Psychology of Happiness was the first book to bring together psychological, philosophical, and physiological theory and research in support of Aristotles view. It examines the similarity between Aristotles concept of virtue and modern cognitive theories of emotion. It discusses the discovery of human potentials, the development of virtue and its neurological basis, the mistaken idea that fulfilment is selfish, and several other issues related to the pursuit of a good human life.

This means that this book is suited for at least two audiences. It is an excellent introduction to Aristotles philosophy and the ideas in psychology, which are relevant for thinking about the good life. Above that it is interesting for people who look for a synthesis in the burgeoning field of happiness research, and who do not like the hedonistic variants of happiness.
