Product description

Review

"Clinical psychologist Schumaker draws on insights from psychology, sociology, anthropology, evolutionary biology, philosophy, economics, and religious studies in order to construct a biography of the life and death of happiness. He explores the essence of happiness in different cultures and different times and critiques the commercialized happiness of today's mass consumer society." - Reference & Research Book News "Your happiness will consist in whatever happens to make you happy, in whatever produces the highest levels of subjective well-being in you. John Schumaker's In Search of Happiness challenges this subjectivist view of happiness, particularly the idea that consumer happiness is the right kind of happiness to pursue....Schumaker deftly connects the shift toward earthly happiness to the rise of the self-help industry....While the call to get back to nature has been made before, and while it can sound dreamy and insensible, Schumaker makes a strong case against the values of consumer culture. If he is correct, then real happiness can only be achieved through the adoption of reasonable and sustainable values and through efforts to realize these values in the face of market forces that would have us simply work ourselves to death, and then spend the money on the biggest coffin we can afford." - Metapsychology "Schumaker's In Search of Happiness: Understanding an Endangered State of Mind ....[i]s a welcome addition to the bulging literature on happiness. Different from many other books on happiness, this one approaches the topic from a historical and cultural perspective rather than from that of the individual. By looking at the big picture, the author is able to examine the megaforces that shape our lives and to warn us of the perils of modernization and consumerism. Thus, this book is as much a cultural critic as a psychological analysis....[I] highly recommened Schumaker's book to anyone interested in the positive psychology of enhancing the human condition. This is a concise and coherent book on a very complex topic....Both scholars and the general public can benefit from reading this outstanding book....Schumaker has added a new dimension to the ongoing dialogue on the subject of happiness." - PsycCRITIQUES
