Milano, 16 Giugno 2005 - " Researches on the "Economics and Happiness" are increasingly taking a considerable place among the interest of social scientists: quality of life, the relationship between goods and well-begin, relational good, intrinsic motivation, and the impact of basic need and relational satisfactions to motivation and wellness.

These inquiries overlap with the "Capabilities Approach", which very much directs attention to these issues.

In this strand scholars are interested in intrinsic motivations, civic commitment, relationship status and quality and personal growth as
indicators of a happy life.

This approach to happiness - that has supporters in economics, sociology and psychology - is fully consistent with the capabilities approach, and has been influenced by rediscovery of Aristotle's eudaimonic conception of happiness, as discussed in the work of philosopher such as Martha Nussbaum.

The principal aim of this interdisciplinary workshop is together scholars of all the different methodological strands for a rich encounter.
