USM professor talks about happiness on public radio's 'Maine Calling'

USM's Kate Wininger talked about happiness recently with Maine Public's Jennifer Rooks for the radio show "Maine Calling."

"Aristotle talks about happiness a lot and he talked about happiness as both doing well and faring well," said Winninger, a professor of philosophy at USM.

The ancient Greek philosopher also described happiness as having fortune in life, Wininger said.

And when we're unhappy, creativity such as music or dancing can bring happiness, she said..

Wininger is the author of "Nietzsche's Reclamation of Philosophy."
