Inhaltsangabe

The best-selling author of The Righteous Mind draws on philosophical wisdom and scientific research to show how the meaningful life is closer than you think.

The Happiness Hypothesis is an audiobook about ten Great Ideas. Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world's civilizations - to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives and illuminate the causes of human flourishing.

Award-winning psychologist Jonathan Haidt, the author of The Righteous Mind, shows how a deeper understanding of the world's philosophical wisdom and its enduring maxims - like "do unto others as you would have others do unto you", or "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" - can enrich and even transform our lives.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Kritikerstimmen

"An erudite, fluently written, stimulating reassessment of age-old issues." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

"The Happiness Hypothesis...has more to say about the pleasures and perils, the truths, of being alive than any book I've read in a long time." (San Francisco Bay Guardian)

"[T]he psychologist Jonathan Haidt shows in his wonderfully smart and readable The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom [that] modern science and history have a lot to say to each other." (Darrin McMahon, The Washington Post)

Eines der richtig guten Bücher!

Eines der richtig guten Bücher, denen man eine möglichst große Verbreitung wünscht! Sehr empfehlenswert, u.a. auch angesichts der heute immer zugespitzteren gesellschaftlichen Polarisierung. Dieses Buch enthält auch dazu profunde, hilfreiche Überlegungen.

Lacklustre book, lacklustre performance

Personally I didn't get much out of this book. It spreads itself far too thin and the result is that much of the discussion comes across as banal and superficial (though there are isolated exceptions). The reader's style also takes some getting used to. The monotonous drone makes it very hard to focus and take an interest in what's being said - everything tastes like cardboard.

Sehr wissenschaftlich, aber ebenso spannend!

Gutes Buch, ich muss und will es definitiv noch ein zweites Mal anhören, um wirklich das gesamte Wissen behalten zu können, aber das ist es auch wert!

Nice!

100% worth the time. It covers a lot of topics from different angles by considering to look at both science papers and some religious thoughts as well.
I'll probably listen to it again in a few months.
