The life worth living - TED vodcast review

Also in philosophy it has been said that the good life is not about having a lot of money, live in luxury or even a life of hedonism. Epicurus is the starting thinker in this line and still, in Hebrew, 'Apikorsim' are supposed to be hedonists, and godless at that. But Epicurus wasn't about that. No one was not even contrary Nietzsche. And they seem to agree about coming to full realization.

So when do we feel happy? The video takes this question on where it belongs more than in philosophy and that is psychology and it observes what is called The Flow.
