Erik Angner, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Economics, and Public Policy, George Mason University
The so-called science of happiness — the systematic empirical study of happiness, understood as a subjectively experienced mental state — is both politically controversial and philosophically interesting. Erik Angner will discuss under what conditions such a measure of happiness can serve as a proxy for well-being.
