When and Why Subjective Well-Being Matters

Erik AngnerSocial Sciences Forum
Erik Angner, associate professor of philosophy, economics, and public policy, George Mason University
Thursday, November 5 | 4 p.m.
Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery  

The so-called science of happiness — the systematic empirical study of happiness, understood as a subjectively experienced mental state — is both politically controversial and philosophically interesting. Erik Angner will discuss under what conditions such a measure of happiness can serve as a proxy for well-being.
