New PEA Soup Series on Happiness and Wellbeing

Nicole Hassoun is initiating an exciting new continuing feature at PEA Soup: A series of posts on happiness and wellbeing. This blog series will be a part of the Minimally Good Life Project with is under the auspices of the Happiness & Well-Being Initiative (happinessandwellbeing.org) based at Saint Louis University. It hopes to explore such questions as: what is happiness, and how does happiness differ from well-being? And what does it mean to have a good life and how do we strive towards that goal? This series will involve regular posts on the topic of happiness from experts in and out of philosophy. She has lined up an amazing group of philosophers, including Connie Rosati, Dan Haybrun, Dick Arenson, Josh Knobe, Gwen Bradford, Rosa Terlazzo, Eden Lin, and herself. She also has a truly exciting lineup of academics outside of philosophy doing important work on the subject. The first post will be by Carol Graham, Leo Pasvolsky Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, on February 1.
