The explanation for the current fixation on happiess seems to lie in the contrary phenomenon–unhappiness. Despite the fact that we have tremendous acess to every imaginable form of entertainment, we experience a pervading sense of insecurity, emptiness, and malaise amid sporadic peak experiences. This book attempts to provide a way out of this personal and cultural vacuum by helping people to identify and then reach for happiness. After exhaustive investigation of philosophical, psychological, and theological systems of happiness, Fr. Spitzer has developed the Four Levels of Happiness based on classical thinkers, contemporary philosophers, and modern psychologists. This book is both a philosophical itinerary and a practical guidebook for life’s most important journey–from mundane to transcendent fulfillment. Paper.
