Chalmers: Happiness is Overrated

David Chalmers was an attendance at a Buddhist conference on happiness held in Sydney this week. This is an Article from the Sydney Morning Herald about the conference. Chalmers position apparently is that the 'bad' emotions are as fun as happiness.

Do we value happiness above what it is worth?

Radio Nationals 'All in the Mind' played a panel discussion of attendees from the happiness conference on Saturday which features David Chalmers. It deals with how can we use science to study happiness. Not particularly interesting or insightful but worth a listen if you have nothing better to do.
