What are the determinants of a happy and fulfilling life? 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 Aristotle to Epicurus and Plato to Socrates) had their own views 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've been forced to base it on discussions with spiritual leaders. Or, if you were lucky, you could've based it on late-night (and perhaps intoxicant-fueled) conversations with friends and family. Happily, all that has changed now. Over the past decade-and-a-half, scientists have gotten into 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 both at the Indian School of Business and at the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin, developed by Prof. Raj Raghunathan (aka "Dr. Happy-smarts") draws content from a variety of fields, including psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral decision theory to offer a tested and practical recipe for leading a life of happiness and fulfillment. Although not mandatory, reading Prof. Raj's forthcoming book, titled If you're so smart, why aren't you happy? can help you review and assimilate the material covered in this book at your leisure. For Coursera learners alone, the hardcover version of the book is available for a deep discount of 50%, plus shipping and handling. You can order the hardcover for 50% off by writing to Aaron at: Aaron@800ceoread.com. Please mention that you are a student of the "coursera happiness course" in your email. The course will feature guest appearances by several well-known thought leaders, including: - Dan Ariely (author of Predictably Irrational and, soon to be released, Irrationally Yours), - Ed Diener (“Dr. Happiness”), - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (author of Flow), By taking this course, you will discover the answers to questions such as: - Why aren’t the smart-and-the-successful as happy as they could—or should—be - What are the “7 Deadly Happiness Sins” that even the smart and the successful commit?, and - What are the “7 Habits of the Highly Happy” and how can you implement them in your life? By the end of the course, I expect students who have been diligent with the lectures and exercises to not just gain a deeper understanding of the science of happiness, but to also be significantly happier.

幸福和充实的生活:幸福和充实的生活的决定因素是什么? 这无疑是生活中最大的问题之一,也是我们许多祖先感兴趣的问题。佛陀为追求幸福而放弃了他的王国。几位希腊哲学家(从亚里斯多德到伊壁鸠鲁,从柏拉图到苏格拉底)对于幸福需要什么有自己的看法。当然,我们每个人都有关于幸福的理论。 我们的理论有多有效? 直到最近,如果您想回答这个问题,您将不得不基于与精神领袖的讨论。或者,如果您幸运的话,您可以根据与朋友和家人的深夜对话(也许是醉酒刺激的对话)进行讨论。幸运的是,现在所有的一切都改变了。在过去的十五年半里,科学家们投入了大量时间。现在,我们对如何过上幸福而充实的生活有了一个很好的认识。 该课程以印度商学院和得克萨斯大学奥斯汀分校麦考姆斯商学院提供的获奖课程为基础,由拉吉·拉古纳森教授(又名“快乐医生”)开发内容涵盖心理学,神经科学和行为决策理论等各个领域,旨在为人们过上幸福和充实的生活提供经验证的实用方法。 尽管不是强制性的,但请阅读拉吉教授即将出版的书《如果您如此聪明,为什么不开心?可以帮助您随意阅读和吸收本书所涵盖的内容。 仅对Coursera学习者而言,这本书的精装版可享受50%的折扣,并附带运输和手续费。您可以通过写信给Aaron以50%的折扣价订购精装本:Aaron@800ceoread.com。请在电子邮件中提及您是“ coursera幸福课程”的学生。 本课程将邀请多位知名思想领袖参加嘉宾出席,包括:       -Dan Ariely(《非理性的预测》的作者,不久之后将发行《非理性的你》),       -Ed Diener(幸福博士),       -Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi(Flow的作者), 通过学习本课程,您将发现以下问题的答案:       -为什么聪明而成功的人不应该或应该像他们那样快乐       -那些聪明又成功的人犯下的“七种致命的幸福罪”是什么?       -什么是“高高兴兴的七个习惯”?在生活中如何实现? 在课程结束时,我希望那些勤于讲课和练习的学生不仅可以对幸福的科学有更深入的了解,而且可以更加快乐。
