This is surely one of life`s biggest questions and a question that has interested many of our ancestors. Buddha famously gave up his kingdom in search of happiness. Several Greek philosophers (from Aristotele to Epicurus and Plato to Socrates) had their own view on what it takes to be happy. And of course, we all have our own theories about happiness too.
How valid are our theories? Until recently, if you wished for an answer to this question, you would have been forced to base it on discussions with spiritual leaders. Or, if you were lucky, you could have based it on late-night (and perhaps intoxicant-fueled) conversations with friends and family. Happily, all that has changed now. Over the past decade, scientists have gotten int the act big time. We now have a pretty good idea of what it takes to lead a happy and fulfilling life.
This course, based on the award-winning class offered at the University of Cairo, developed by Gabriela Zweng draws content from a variety of fields, including psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral decision theory to offer a practical recipe for leading a fantastic life of happiness, health and fulfillment.
Happiness comes from inside!
