Age of happiness. (Review)

Evseeva Ya.V.


The present review considers differences in the perception of happiness in various age groups: among young, middleaged and older people, respectively. According to the authors of the articles reviewed, increasing numbers of studies have recently claimed that the highest levels of happiness and subjective well-being are observed in later maturity. The review traces how the phenomenon in question is manifested, what may be its causes, to what extent it is universal and what consequences this may have for future societies.
