A book by Prof. Yukiko Uchida, entitled ‘Thinking About Future Happiness: A Cultural Psychological Perspective,’ has been published from Shin-yo-sha.
This book summarizes perspectives based on her research on culture and happiness.
From the description on the wraparound band:
Based on the research findings in cultural psychology, this book investigates the concept of happiness under the post- globalization period. The big question is, “what is our future happiness?”
Message from the author:
Happiness is not just a bright, positive concept. Happiness sometimes contains conflicts within society, such as social discrepancies or human-nature relationships. In this book, I would like to suggest that we think seriously about what happiness is rather than simply saying, “Let’s be happy.” I hope this book will provide readers with an opportunity to “think” about happiness objectively and scientifically.
