“Create all the happiness you are able to create: remove all the misery you are able to remove,” wrote Jeremy Bentham in 1830; only now, however, are the ingredients of happiness and misery coming into view for scholars and policy-makers. Exploring well-being and misery through the lenses of biology and psychology, as well as art, economics, and literature, this seminar studies the determinants of happiness and a life of meaning, the bodily ways stress and conflict threaten well-being, and effective strategies by individuals, work-places, and governments to improve well-being.
