Happiness research: Past and Future
Scholarly interest in happiness peaked in ancient Greek philosophy and during the
18th century Enlightenment. Interest in the subject revived in the second half of the
20th century and still mounts today.
In this paper, I describe these trends of interest in happiness and speculate about the drivers of this development. On this basis, I make an educated guess about interest in the future.
