The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom

by: Jonathan Haidt

Review by: Dr. Jacob Bryan

Excellent book from the founder of moral psychology. Haidt recognizes that virtue and spirituality are key missing pieces to modern medicine and moder psychology.

Per amazon:

The Happiness Hypothesis is a book about ten Great Ideas. Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world’s civilizationsto 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 shows how a deeper understanding of the world’s philosophical wisdom and its enduring maximslike “do unto others as you would have others do unto you,” or “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”can enrich and transform our lives.
