The basic need that probably unites all human beings, is the need for a satisfactory and happy existence. It seems to be our most fundamental stimulus that consciously, subconsciously or unconsciously underlies most of our activities.

Being able to achieve a good and happy life, especially two things seem to be required: Firstly, we must understand what constitutes a happy life and secondly, we must be able to approach this state of existence with the appropriate means.

If philosophy shall contribute something to a happy living, it consequently has to be oriented towards the question of the good and happy life. If philosophy shall have an effect, then it also has to deal with the means that lead to this essential target.

Online Philosophy provides you valuable resources that might help you to think about the good and happy life, to get ideas what it could be and to identify ways and means to work towards it. Thus you find texts, tubes and book recommendations of people who were thoroughly dealing with this subject.
