As Aristotle noted some 2400 years ago, “Happiness is the one thing we choose for its own sake – everything else is chosen for the sake of happiness.” One of the hottest topics in contemporary culture is happiness. The explanation for this current fixation seems to lie in the contrary phenomenon – unhappiness. Despite the fact that we have tremendous access to every imaginable form of entertainment, we experience a pervading sense of insecurity, emptiness, and malaise amid sporadic peak experiences.
This book is built upon Fr. Spitzer’s brilliant, “Four Levels of Happiness”. Developed over many years, the “Four Levels of Happiness” are based on works of the worlds most famous historical and contemporary philosophers, classical thinkers and psychologists. Finding True Happiness is both a philosophical itinerary and a practical guidebook for life’s most important journey – from the mundane and the meaningless to transcendent fulfillment.
“With reason, with the logic of both mind and the heart, Robert Spitzer not only convinces us that happiness is within everyone’s grasp but also shows us how to seize it. This is an intelligent, warm and life-changing book.” Dean Koontz, #1 New York Times Best Selling Author.
