About this item

The authors examine friendship and happiness, as well as their connection and how films, television series, music, and short stories have contributed to their understanding. They first discuss friendships from the time of Aristotle and his three categories of friends of utility, pleasure, and the good, through the types and categories of friendships in the contemporary era, including how people form friendships and the role of group formation, the socialization process and theories of human development, and the development of cyber socialization and electronic friendships, with discussion of their negative effects, social networks, and virtual friendships. The second part of the book considers the concept of happiness from philosophical and sociological perspectives, sources of happiness, unhappiness, and the connection between friendship and happiness.
