Since antiquity, people have been asking themselves what it means to live a good life. How should I live? What constitutes a good life? What's the role of fate? What's the role of money? Is leading a good life a question of mindset, or is it more about reaching your goals? Is it better to actively seek happiness or to avoid unhappiness? Each generation poses these questions anew, and somehow the answers are always fundamentally disappointing. Why? Because we're constantly searching for a single principle, a single tenet, a single rule. Yet this holy grail--a single, simple path to happiness--doesn't exist. Rolf Dobelli -- successful businessman, founder of the TED-style ideas conference Zurich Minds, bestselling author, and all-around seeker of big ideas--has made finding a shortcut to happiness his life's mission. He's synthesized the leading thinkers and the latest science in happiness to find the best shortcuts to satisfaction in The Art of the Good Life, his follow up to the international bestseller The Art of Thinking Clearly (which has sold more than 2.5 million copies in 40 languages all around the globe). The Art of the Good Life is a toolkit designed for practical living. Here you'll find fifty-two happiness hacks -- from guilt-free shunning of technology to gleefully paying your parking tickets -- that are certain to optimize your happiness. These tips may not guarantee you a good life, but they'll give you a better chance (and that's all any of us can ask for).

This volume concentrates on a hedonistic argument that enters the philosophical debate, when philosophers argue that what they present as the good life is the truly pleasurable life. The book investigates more precisely how this point was made by Plato and his successors.
However, at a crucial point, in his discussion of the role of pleasure in the good life, Plotinus appropriates the terms used in the Aristotelian definition ...

Tony Bennett is the man Frank Sinatra called 'the best singer in the business', and whose 1995 Grammy Awards for 'Album of the Year' and 'Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance' for MTV Unplugged moved the New York Times to say, 'Tony Bennett has not just bridged the generation gap, he has demolished it.' He has legions of fans over a staggeringly large age span and in a recording career spanning five decades he has made 40 albums. His autobiography is rich with the stories of his long career and of the personalities he has known and includes the highs and lows, the successes and excesses of what has ultimately been a blessed life.

There's no question, we'd all choose the good life any day of the week--and yet we don't always understand how to make that happen. We constantly ask ourselves questions like Is it better to serve God or to serve people? How can I be a good steward of what God has given me? I don't have a lot of money right now; is there anything else I can do? We know God calls us to be generous people, but what does that really look like? In this easy-to-read booklet, bestselling author Randy Alcorn answers these questions and shows us how we can do what pleases God, helps others, and is best for us--all at the same time.

Tourism is arguably one of the largest self-initiated commercial interventions to create well-being and happiness on the entire planet. Yet there is a lack of specific attention to the ways in which we can better understand and evaluate the relationship between well-being and travel. The recent surge of scholarly work in positive psychology concerned with human well-being and flourishing represents a contemporary force with the potential to embellish and augment much current tourism study. This book maps out the field and then draws links between tourists, tourism and positive psychology. It discusses topics such as the issue of excess materialism and its fragile relationship with well-being, the value of positive psychology to lifestyle businesses, and the insights of the research field to spa and wellness tourism. This volume will interest those who study and practise tourism as well as scholars and graduate students in a range of disciplines such as psychology, sociology, business and leisure.
Future research into non-Western philosophies of the good life in the context of tourists and tourism would be valuable and may fulfil the above demands in ...

At the centre of our ethical thought stands the human being. Roger Teichmann examines the ways in which facts about human nature determine the shape of ethical concepts such as rationality, virtue, and happiness. He argues that only by attending to the social and empirical character of language use can we address a number of problems in ethics.
Good. Life. In Chapter 2, I said that the two central questions of ethics, 'How should I live?' and 'What sort of person should I be?
