1927. This book attempts two things: first to demonstrate that happiness for all human beings is not only feasible, but the most satisfactory basis for social construction; second to bring to the help of such construction modern theories of the nature of man and of the universe. At a time when there is so widespread a struggle against national, class and sexual oppression, it seems important to examine the various claims which are advanced, and to see whether, after all, there is not behind them a consistent new philosophy. Contents: conceptions of life: Chinese, Greeks and Christians; conceptions of life: modern rationalism and science; rights of human beings: food, work, knowledge, sex and parenthood; rights of children; modern civilization.
