Measuring earnings. Measuring happiness (?)


It seems that people want to earn more, even though they cannot consume it or use it. (1) The scientists believe that this is because we can measure how much we earn, but we cannot measure how “happy” we are (or how much unhappy we become when we work more and more for things we do not need).


If you work less and spend time with your family doesn’t that amount to something you can understand and measure?

This is one hour more with your son you idiot!
These are two hours more with your daughter you fool!
These are three hours with your wife you… #@@#@$#@!

Need I count more?

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
