Summary
"This volume heralds the emergence of a new field of science that endeavours to understand how individuals and societies thrive and flourish, and how this new knowledge can be applied to foster happiness, health, and fulfilment." "Taking a dynamic cross-disciplinary approach, it sets out to explore the most promising routes to well-being, derived from the latest research in psychology, biomedical science, social science, economics, and the effects of our natural environment. Contributions come from some of the world's leading researchers, practitioners, and policy advisors."--Jacket
