Happiness, technology and innovation
This book asks what kind of impacts innovations and technology have on subjective well-being and happiness. It presents the state of the art both in terms of results and theoretical questioning on these topics.
It proposes a new concept : innovation that leads to greater happiness, and highlights new research in this area. In so doing, it addresses a less researched area in the field of well-being research. It highlights the fact that despite the indisputable positive contributions of innovation and technology, there are also drawbacks, which must be given equal attention in research.
This book is of interest to students and researchers of quality of life and well-being, as well as innovation research.
