Radical Happiness: Moments of Collective Joy

by Lynne Segal
£16.99   hardback  Verso Books (2017)

Radical Happiness: Moments of Collective Joy by Lynne Segal What is the true meaning of happiness? Lynne Segal explores the radical potential of being together.
 
Why are we so obsessed by the pursuit of happiness? With new ways to measure contentment we are told that we have a right to individual joy. But at what cost?
 
In an age of increasing individualism, we have never been more alone and miserable. But what if the true nature of happiness can only be found in others? In Radical Happiness, leading feminist thinker Lynne Segal believes that we have lost the art of radical happiness — the art of transformative, collective joy. She shows that only in the revolutionary potential of coming together it is that we can come to understand the powers of flourishing.
 
Radical Happiness is a passionate call for the re-discovery of the political and emotional joy that emerge when we learn to share our lives together.
