Who’s happier: lottery winners or paraplegics? The answer––like many insights from psychology––will surprise you. This free mini-course, taught by a Harvard psychology PhD student and stand-up comedian, pulls together psychology’s most fascinating findings to answer some of life’s deepest questions: what makes us happy, why can’t we all agree, and are we really in control of our own thoughts?
