There are, in our view, three types of traditional theories of happiness. Which one you believe has implications for how you lead your life, raise your child, or even cast your vote. First, there is Hedonism. In all its variants, it holds that happiness is a matter of raw subjective feeling. A happy life maximizes feelings of pleasure and minimizes pain.

The pursuit of happiness and meaning are two of our most central motivations in life. A wealth of research in positive psychology suggests that happiness and meaning are, in fact, essential elements of well-being. Happiness and meaning are strongly correlated with each other , and often feed off each other. The more meaning we find in life, the more happy we typically feel, and the more happy we feel, the more we often feel encouraged to pursue even greater meaning and purpose. An increasing body of research suggests that that there can be substantial trade-offs between seeking happiness and seeking meaning in life.
An important project in the philosophy of happiness is simply getting clear on what various writers are talking about: what are the important meanings of the term and how do they connect? This entry focuses on the psychological sense of happiness for the well-being notion, see the entry on well-being. The main accounts of happiness in this sense are hedonism, the life satisfaction theory, and the emotional state theory. Leaving verbal questions behind, we find that happiness in the psychological sense has always been an important concern of philosophers.
In this paper two philosophical issues are discussed that hold special interest for empirical researchers studying happiness. The first issue concerns the question of how the psychological notion s of happiness invoked in empirical research relates to those traditionally employed by philosophers. The second concerns the question of how we ought to conceive of happiness, understood as a purely psychological phenomenon. With respect to the first, I argue that 'happiness', as used in the philosophical literature, has three importantly different senses that are often confused. Empirical research on happiness concerns only one of these senses, and serious misunderstandings about the significance of empirical results can arise from such confusion.

Don't have an account? This chapter offers an analysis of meaningfulness in life and argues that meaningfulness, so conceived, is an important feature of a good human life that is distinct from happiness. According to this chapter, meaningful lives are lives of active engagement in projects of worth. That is, meaning arises when subjective attraction meets objective attractiveness.

Она решила включить громкую связь. - Слушаю, Джабба. Металлический голос Джаббы заполнил комнату: - Мидж, я в главном банке данных. У нас тут творятся довольно странные вещи.
Беккер почти вслепую приближался к двери. - Подожди! - крикнул. - Подожди. Меган с силой толкнула стенку секции, но та не поддавалась.
Стеклянный купол словно наполнился то и дело вспыхивающими огнями и бурлящими клубами пара. Бринкерхофф стоял точно завороженный и, не в силах унять дрожь, стукался лбом о стекло. Затем, охваченный паникой, помчался к двери.
