Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Well-Being explores diverse conceptualisations of well-being, providing an overview of key issues and drawing attention to current debates and critiques. Taken as a whole, this important work offers new clarification of the widely used notion of well-being, focusing particularly on experiential perspectives.

Bringing together leading authors from around the world, Routledge Handbook of Well-Being reflects on:

  • What it is that is experienced by humans that can be called well-being.
  • What we know about how to understand it.
  • How well-being is manifested in human endeavours through a wide range of disciplines, including the arts.

This comprehensive reference work will provide an authoritative overview for students, practitioners, researchers and policy makers working in or concerned with well-being, health, illness and the relation between all three across a range of disciplines, from sociology, healthcare and economics to philosophy and the creative arts.
