Описание
Вопрос счастья: В ожидании лучшего в изменчивом мире Сэма Рена-Льюиса (издание на английском языке.We appear to have more control over our lives than ever before. If we could get things right – the perfect job, relationship, family, body and mind – then we’d be happy. With enough economic growth and technological innovation, we could cure all societal ills. The Happiness Problem shows that this way of thinking is too simplistic and can even be harmful: no matter how much progress we make, we will still be vulnerable to disappointment, loss and suffering. The things we do to make us happy are merely the tip of the iceberg. Sam Wren-Lewis offers an alternative process that acknowledges insecurity and embraces uncertainty. Drawing on our psychological capacities for curiosity and compassion, he proposes that we can connect with, and gain a deeper understanding of, the personal and social challenges that define our time.Product description

ReviewThis wise and engaging book punctures a toxic myth about happiness: that it is ours to choose. Yet our mania for control itself makes us less happy. In its stead Sam Wren-Lewis offers an inspiring, and liberating, message of acceptance and understanding. --Dan Haybron, Saint Louis University, Missouri, USAWeaves together psychology research and philosophy to show that conventional ideas about happiness are wrong. Convincing and thought-provoking, Wren-Lewis calls on readers to reconsider the pursuit of happiness to lead more meaningful lives. --Emily Esfahani Smith, author of The Power of MeaningSam Wren-Lewis provides a fresh look on the topic of happiness. With insight and wisdom he advocates that we stop trying to control everything and learn to love uncertainty. Highly recommended. --Valerie Tiberius, University of MinnesotaAbout the AuthorSam Wren-Lewis is an independent scholar with a PhD from the University of Leeds on the philosophy of happiness, and the author of a number of published papers on the study of happiness and wellbeing.
He is also a self-employed wellbeing consultant, and former Head of Research and Development at Happy City, where he carries out collaborative research and policy work with a wide range of wellbeing policy organisations.
