Learning Objectives

The course aims the objectives of the knowledge of the main sociological theories of well-being - starting from the delimitation of the semantic field and from the relevant distinction from neighboring concepts of wealth, happiness, health - and of the demonstration of their possibilities in the sense of application. In particular, we will present some models of intervention in the field of personal well-being (agency achievement) as body and mind care, quest for aesthetic perfection and for physical fitness; in the field of social well-being (standard of living) as social support, social networks, services for citizens; in the field of inter-subjective well-being (social styles) as cultural models, and lifestyles.
