Condiciones para el fomento de la felicidad pública
AbstractThis paper is based on the hypothesis that to feel individually and collectively respected is vital to private and public happiness because, as well as the sensation of comfort that it produces, respect creates a favorable context both for the acquisition of capabilities and for the opportunity to exercise them. All this may be positive for individuals, for those closest to them, for society as a whole and, even, for future societies. The objective of this paper is to identify the conditions that favor this result. Its main proposition is that respect comes from the capacity to make others respect one, so the paper focuses on the analysis of the circumstances that favor this capacity.
