The happiness industry : how the government and big business sold us well-being / William Davies.
Förlag: London : Verso, 2015.
ISBN: 9781781688458 (hbk.) :
In winter 2014, a Tibetan monk lectured the world leaders gathered at Davos on the importance of happiness. The recent DSM-5, the manual of all diagnosable mental illnesses, for the first time included shyness and grief as treatable diseases. Happiness has become the biggest idea of our age, a new religion dedicated to well-being. In this dissection of our times, political economist William Davies shows how this philosophy, first pronounced by Jeremy Bentham in the 1780s, has dominated the political debates that have delivered neoliberalism.
