1. Felicidad (excesiva, de menos, o balanceada)

William Davies on The Happiness Industry. Me parece que est√° bueno cuestionar qu√© y c√≥mo se consigue el bienestar. Y que nos obliguen por motivos √©ticos, productivos o lo que sea. Pero definitivamente parece un mandato. ¬ŅPor qu√© la gente sonr√≠e tanto en las fotos y antes no?

Browsing through the index and content of the book. Jeremy Bentham lee Joseph Priestly, un religioso, y básicamente dice lo mismo que Aristóteles: La felicidad de la comunidad se mide por el bienestar de sus participantes. En ese momento Bentham grita Eureka!! y así nace el utilitarismo. Ojo al piojo. Como intro al libro es una buena advertencia de a quién sirve el buena cara y optimismo. La confrontación sería la otra cara de una democracia sana también. La una sin la otra tal vez sea lo más pobre.

Capítulo 4 parece prometedor: el trabajador somático.

Previsible y en este caso felizmente, el final es un poco lo anticipado. El √ļltimo cap√≠tulo, el 8 se llama animales cr√≠ticos.

Las siguientes oraciones primeras y √ļltimas del cap√≠tulo son as√≠:

It has long been understood that working outdoors has certain psychological and emotional benefits, especially when it involves tending nature. Gardening can prove helpful in alleviating depression, and there is evidence to suggest that the presence of foliage directly lifts an individual’s mood.

What would the critique of smartness look like? And what would resistance to it mean? Would it be a celebration of ‚Äėdumbness‚Äô? Would we simply refuse to wear the health-tracking wristbands? Perhaps. Some aspects of the Benthamite utopia can seem almost impossible to duck out of ‚Äď the sentiment analyser who discovers the happiest neighbourhood in the city, through mining the geo-data of tweets; the instructions from one‚Äôs doctor to exercise more gratitude so as to improve both mood and reduce physical stress. But remembering the philosophical contradictions inherent in these ventures, and their historical and political origins, may at least offer a source of something which has no simple bodily or neural correlate, and involves a strange tinge of happiness in spite of unhappiness: hope.

16. On suicide

One of the most powerful descriptions of suicide I've ever read. David Foster Wallace - Infinite Jest

The so-called ‚Äėpsychotically depressed‚Äô person who tries to kill herself doesn‚Äôt do so out of quote ‚Äėhopelessness‚Äô or any abstract conviction that life‚Äôs assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill herself the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise. Make no mistake about people who leap from burning windows. Their terror of falling from a great height is still just as great as it would be for you or me standing speculatively at the same window just checking out the view; i.e. the fear of falling remains a constant. The variable here is the other terror, the fire‚Äôs flames: when the flames get close enough, falling to death becomes the slightly less terrible of two terrors. It‚Äôs not desiring the fall; it‚Äôs terror of the flames. And yet nobody down on the sidewalk, looking up and yelling ‚ÄėDon‚Äôt!‚Äô and ‚ÄėHang on!‚Äô, can understand the jump. Not really. You‚Äôd have to have personally been trapped and felt flames to really understand a terror way beyond falling.

17. Apple: c√≥mo Tim Cook cambi√≥ la compa√Ī√≠a m√°s ic√≥nica del mundo

Los rumores indican que Apple está mirando nuevos negocios. El de los medios y el entretenimiento es un mercado global de US$ 550.000 millones. El negocio global de los autos es de US$ 3,5 billones. El gasto anual global en salud es de más de US$ 9 billones. Y si bien Apple actualmente puede no dominar ninguna de estas arenas, no hay que olvidarse de que los analistas en un tiempo pensaban que Apple tendría un éxito si podía dominar un 1% del negocio de los teléfonos móviles.
