Rezension

From the reviews:

“This is an important book presenting clear evidence within the fields of philosophy, social, and natural science about the myth of maximization as the source of happiness. … Human Happiness and the Pursuit of Maximization is an important contribution to the literature that encourages readers to look at maximization in its relation to happiness at the individual and social levels.” (Louis Hoffman and Monica Mansilla, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 59 (17), 2014)
