9780195323276: Well-Being: Happiness in a Worthwhile Life

This book offers a new argument for the ancient claim that well-being as the highest prudential good — eudaimonia — consists of happiness in a virtuous life. The argument takes into account recent work on happiness, well-being, and virtue, and defends a neo-Aristotelian conception of virtue as an integrated intellectual-emotional disposition that is limited in both scope and stability. This conception of virtue is argued to be widely-held and compatible with social and cognitive psychology.
The main argument of the book is as follows: (i) the concept of well-being as the highest prudential good is internally coherent and widely held; (ii) well-being thus conceived requires an objectively worthwhile life; (iii) in turn, such a life requires autonomy and reality-orientation, i.e., a disposition to think for oneself, seek truth or understanding about important aspects of one's own life and human life in general, and act on this understanding when circumstances permit; (iv) to the extent that someone is successful in achieving understanding and acting on it, she is realistic, and to the extent that she is realistic, she is virtuous; (v) hence, well-being as the highest prudential good requires virtue. But complete virtue is impossible for both psychological and epistemic reasons, and this is one reason why complete well-being is impossible.

Recensione:

This is an ambitious and important book. It manages to clear a commonsensical path through the non-commonsensical stretches of various eudaimonistic theories of virtue and happiness - while remaining squarely in the Aristotelian tradition, construed broadly. It resists the (aspirational) Aristotelian impulse to cast virtue in terms of fixed global traits of character. It resists the Stoic insistence on collapsing the account of the good into one thing - virtue itself - with everything else being at most a preferred indifferent. ... For all these reasons, this work is bound to be an important resource for further work on virtue ethics generally, whether within the eudaimonistic tradition or not. ( Lawrence C. Becker, Professor Emeritus, College of William and Mary)

[C]onsistently engaging, colorful, and intricately argued. ( Jean Kazez, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. Oxford University Press, 2014. 264p. Hardback. Neera Badhwar has given us a rich, subtle and humane philosophical portrait of human flourishing, marrying the critical bite of Aristotelian theories with the subjective attractions of modern accounts, and providing an exceptionally thoughtful discussion of the significance of autonomy and reality-orientation for human well-being (Badhwar 2014). It is an important contribution to the debate regarding Aristotelian theories of well-being, which for my money are the most formidable of the traditional players in philosophical debates about well-being.
