In The Conquest of Happiness, first published by de Vivre in 1930, iconoclast, philosopher Bertrand Russell attempted to diagnose the multiple causes of misfortune in modern life and to trace a way out of the seemingly inescapable path of malaise, so widespread, even in the security and prosperity of Western societies.More than eighty years later, Russell’s wisdom remains as true as when it first came out.By refusing the basic guilt of morality, Russell defines a rationalist prescription to live a happy life, including the importance of cultivating interests outside oneself and the dangers of passive pleasure.In this new edition, best-selling philosopher Daniel CDennett reintroduces Russell back to a new generation, indicating that the Conquest is both a fascinating moment of the capsule, and a prototype of the flood of self-help books that have more recently been published, some of them deserve to be read today as Russell’s little book”
