Recipes and rules for happiness — from Aristotle and Aquinas

In Living in Happiness in a Complex World, Aristotle and Aquinas lay out a dependable, time-tested and proven method and recipe for happiness. Their recipe for happiness has never been more relevant.

'Two of the greatest minds in history provide a timeless formula for anyone to achieve happiness. This is a wonderful book. Contemporary examples make it absolutely approachable, even by those who may struggle with philosophy.' — Ronald J. Rychlak, Jamie L. Whitten Chair of Law & Government, University of Mississippi, School of Law, USA

'Charles Nemeth deftly employs Aristotle's and Aquinas's logic to persuasively exhort the pursuit of truth to achieve happiness, and to have God within our souls while seeking a clear understanding of the world around us to foster peace and tranquility.' — Kevin H. Govern, Professor of Law, Ave Maria Law School, USA

'Drawing from Aristotle and Aquinas, this book is truly a gift to remind us that happiness is promoted by living naturally and in accord with our natures, and that happiness with God is, as Nemeth reminds us, 'never fleeting, never temporary and forever eternal.'' — Anne Hendershott, Professor of Sociology, Franciscan University of Steubenville, USA
