HNRS 30533 Happiness: Culture, Economics, and Being

Explores anthropological and economic perspectives on happiness and human flourishing: the diverse ways in which well-being is conceptualized and experienced in different cultural contexts, the complex relationship between well-being and economic growth, and cross-disciplinary inquiry into the conditions and activities (such as community, ecology, dignity, creativity, generosity, trust, health, and inequality) that engender or impede human flourishing.
