The book presents a holistic picture of the good life, which transcends the prevalent narrow understanding of what constitutes success, fulfilment and happiness in life. It offers a fresh interpretation of human values as the collectivity of all those values which enrich the different dimensions of life- material, societal, psychological, aesthetic, ethical and spiritual. A harmonious realisation of all these values helps us grow as truly and fully human persons. The book synthesises ideas drawn from both the classical indian value tradition and the modern western humanistic thought. The two are looked upon as being complementary and not antagonistic. The book should appeal to all those who are concerned about questions like how to be a good person?, how to live a good life?, and how to help create a good society? it should be of special interest to professionals. They are now expected not only to solve specific technical problems competently, but also to examine their work in relation to the larger social, ethical and human context. To equip them with such competency, some universities and institutes have introduced courses on value-related themes. The book should prove helpful as a textbook for such courses.
