For this Assignment you will be reading two articles of your choosing from the Journal of Happiness Studies. As you read, think about how each article approaches the topic of happiness and which aspect it focuses on. Ask yourself what the findings of each article are, and how these findings might impact or influence our modern understanding of happiness. When you have finished reading the article, think about different ways in which followers of some of the spiritual traditions you have studied in this course might view these findings. Do you think they could agree with some of the ideas raised by the articles, or would those ideas prove fundamentally contrary to their beliefs?
