This section contains some of my contemplations related to the Philosophy of Happiness. They are precursors, companions, and afterthoughts of various length and form.

 

The single essays can be read and listened to by clicking on the titles below. All of them together are also available for download free of charge as a PDF e-book titled Philosophic Reflections (43 pages) in the Materials section.

 

I am publishing these because they might help readers relate to my inspirations in developing a philosophy of happiness, might illustrate some of its concepts and results, and might encourage readers to search out and give voice to their own reflections about happiness.

WHAT COLOR IS THE SKY? (print and audio). A contemplation about how differently we may see and describe external and internal impressions.
