The Science of Happiness: Happiness, the Hard Way

 9/10/15: What Is Happiness?

This reading is also an excerpt from
 Happiness: A History by Darrin M. McMahon.
So, on ThursdayI mentioned that the next step in this week's "class" was a reading, so I thought since this reading was an online article, and not one of my library books, you might enjoy reading it along with me.

"Happiness, the Hard Way" by Darrin M. McMahon was posted in May of 2009 to the Greater Good website.  Take a look and let's meet back here when you're done.

OK, cool.  This reading comes pretty close to bringing you up to speed with what the course has been discussing so far this week. But it also raises some interesting points.

So tell me: what do you think of current (and especially Western) ideas about happiness?
