Product Description

About the Author

One of the founding fathers of modern American anthropology, Daniel Garrison Brinton was born in 1837 in Thornbury Township, Pennsylvania. He worked as a surgeon during the American Civil War in the Union Army and was the surgeon-in-charge during 1864-65 of the U.S. Army general hospital at Quincy, Illinois. He practiced medicine after the war, and from 1874 to 1887, edited The Medical and Surgical Reporter, a weekly periodical, in Philadelphia. In 1884, Brinton worked at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, as a professor of ethnology and archaeology, and then, in 1886, joined the University of Pennsylvania as a professor of archaeology and American linguistics. Brinton was a member of several intellectual societies. He also wrote numerous brochures, articles, pamphlets, addresses, and books. Notes on the Floridian Peninsula (1859), The Myths of the New World (1868), American Hero Myths (1882), and The Pursuit of Happiness (1893) are some of his works.
Half of the happiness is the recognition that we are happy, and half of the misery is
the forgetting how many causes of happiness we have.”
From happiness as the aim of life to its dependency on nature, luck, our own selves, and others, Daniel G. Brinton’s The Pursuit of Happiness provide rare and valuable insights on this most sought-after emotion and the pursuit to attain it.
The book, in addition to defining happiness and explaining the desirability of being taught how to become happy, explores pleasure and pain, the hierarchy of enjoyments, the distribution of happiness in the classes of society and in the two sexes, principles to promote one’s own happiness, and the consolations of affliction.
A rare classic, The Pursuit of Happiness continues to lend us a helping hand in our relentless pursuit of being happy.
