Happiness in a Worthwhile Life

Neera K. Badhwar

  • Offers a new argument for the ancient claim that well-being as the highest prudential good consists of happiness in a life according to virtue
  • Takes into account recent work on happiness, well-being, and virtue
  • Defends a neo-Aristotelian conception of virtue as an integrated intellectual-emotional disposition that is limited in both scope and stability
