2008 Advice of the wise; Introduction to the special issue on advice for a happy life



Version: 1.1


The demand for happiness advice is vast and many different thinkers have offered their views. This special issue presents a cross section of happiness counseling through the
ages and considers the advice by classic Chinese philosophers, Epicurus, Schopenhauer, as well as contemporary New Age thinkers and self-help authors. The papers follow three leading questions: 1) What is recommended for leading a happy life? 2) How does this advice fit in the worldview of the author and into a social, cultural and historical context? 3) Are the recommendations in line with what is known about the conditions of happiness? There are common themes in advice for a happy life but also much contradiction, and some honoured philosophers offer advice that can harm happiness if it is taken to heart by present day readers.
