Abstract

Humans have been seeking happiness for as long as there have been
humans. In different times, they have envisioned different paths to
happiness. Five main ways to happiness stand out in classical advice on
ways to happiness: the way of the warrior, the way of the merchant, the
way of the philosopher, the ways of the peasant and the way of the monk.
Which of these historical views fit best with results from current scientific
research on happiness?
