2. The Critical Introduction section features an article summarizing (a) what philosophy of happiness is, (b) why it should matter to us, (c) what assistance we can draw from philosophy, empiric science, religion, and self-help sources, and (d) why taking an independent approach is both necessary and feasible.


3. The Book section outlines the basic conundrums of identifying and pursuing happiness as well as the undertakings of the Philosophy of Happiness book toward this purpose. It also offers information about the print and e-book editions of the book and provides links for buying them.


4. The Knowing Series section informs about  a six-volume series of original philosophical quotes and poems: Live Knowing Life, Love Knowing Love, Pine Knowing Pain, Shine Knowing Shame, Climb Knowing Aim, and Knowing Won't Let Darkness Reign. It also connects to reading samples and purchasing information regarding the print and e-book editions of the books in the Knowing series.
