for me, here are the most important questions to ask about happiness:
1. what is happiness?
2. how to attain happiness?
3. why are you un/happy? put differently, what makes or can make me (or any other fellow human being) un/happy?
the first question is purely conceptual or theoretical, the second one both theoretical and pragmatic, and the last apparently pragmatic.
in my previous postings, i have tried to define what happiness means to me; now i am shifting my attention to the ways to attain happiness.
as i see it, there are three basic approaches to happiness: religious, educational and intuitive, which i will dwell upon in my subsequent postings.
