Happiness for humans tells the story of artificial intelligence attaining self awareness while this might seem like terminator territory it is covered here in the form of romantic comedy a kind of four weddings and three ais. In happiness for humans daniel c russell takes a fresh look at happiness from a practical perspective the perspective of someone trying to solve the wonderful problem of how to give himself a good life from this perspective happiness is the name of a solution to that problem for practical deliberation. Russell assumes that even if nothing in the emotional repertoire of other animals counts as real love that is not a loss limitation or deficiency for them but humans who cannot love are defective because their happiness must be a human kind of happiness hence the books title happiness for humans. Put another way humans may resemble many other creatures in their striving for happiness but the quest for meaning is a key part of what makes us human and uniquely so. Looking at happiness from this perspective this book argues that happiness is a life of activity with three main features it is acting for the sake of ends we can live for and living for them wisely it is fulfilling for us both as humans and as unique individuals and it is inextricable from our connections with the particular persons
