Books Info:

The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Well-Being free pdf The concept of well-being is one of the oldest and most important topics in philosophy and ethics, going back to ancient Greek philosophy. Following the boom in happiness studies in the last few years it has moved to centre stage, grabbing media headlines and the attention of scientists, psychologists and economists. Yet little is actually known about well-being and it is an idea that is often poorly articulated. The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Well-Being provides a comprehensive, outstanding guide and reference source to the key topics and debates in this exciting subject. Comprising over 40 chapters by a team of international contributors, the Handbook is divided into six parts: * well-being in the history of philosophy * current theories of well-being, including hedonism and perfectionism * examples of well-being and its opposites, including friendship and virtue and pain and death * theoretical issues, such as well-being and value, harm, identity and well-being and children * well-being in moral and political philosophy * well-being and related subjects, including law, economics and medicine. Essential reading for students and researchers in ethics and political philosophy, it is also an invaluable resource for those in related disciplines such as psychology, politics and sociology.
