Product description

From the Back Cover

Was ist wahres Glück? Emily Esfahani Smith verdeutlicht, dass wir dem falschen Ziel hinterherjagen. Nicht Glück macht das Leben lebenswert, sondern ein tieferer Sinn. Gestützt auf Erkenntnisse der Psychologie, Philosophie und Literatur sowie Geschichten von Menschen, die ein erfülltes Leben führen, beschreibt sie die vier Säulen des Sinns: sich zugehörig fühlen, die eigene Bestimmung finden, die Welt durch Geschichten verstehen und sich als Teil eines größeren Ganzen erfahren. Ihre kluge Analyse zeigt, was im Leben wirklich zählt.

Dieses Buch erschien 2018 als Hardcover unter dem Titel »Glück allein macht keinen Sinn« im Mosaik Verlag.

Emily Esfahani Smith is a writer and journalist in Washington DC. Her book, "The Power of Meaning," was published in 2017 by Crown and has been translated into 16 different languages. The Wall Street Journal called the book “persuasive,” “elegant,” and “valuable” while the Prospect (UK) dubbed it “an intelligent page-turner.” In 2017, Smith delivered a talk called “There’s More to Life Than Being Happy” on the main stage of TED, which was based on her book. It’s been viewed over 6 million times.

The former managing editor of The New Criterion, Smith’s articles and essays have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, and other publications. Her articles for The Atlantic “There’s More to Life Than Being Happy” (about the Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl) and “Masters of Love” (about romance and marriage) have reached over 30 million readers. Her profile for the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine of Joe Rago, a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist who tragically died at the age of 34, was shortlisted for a Folio magazine award in 2018. You can read more of her pieces on her website,

Smith is also a reporter for the Aspen Institute's Weave project, an initiative founded by the New York Times' David Brooks to address the problems of isolation, alienation, and division. At Weave, Smith finds and tells the stories of people who are working to rebuild the social fabric.

Smith got her start in journalism at Dartmouth College, where she majored in philosophy. She received her master’s degree in positive psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013. Between 2013 and 2018, she served as an instructor in positive psychology at the University of Pennsylvania.

Born in Zurich, Switzerland, Smith grew up in Montreal, Canada, where her parents administered a Sufi meetinghouse from their home. She now lives in Washington DC with her husband, Charlie.
