Academic Contribution to The Science of Well-Being
Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society
On 19th and 20th November 2003, The Royal Society of London hosted a Discussion Meeting that had been organised by F. A. Huppert, N.V.K. Baylis, and E. B. Keverne (all faculty members of Cambridge University).
Founded in 1660, The Royal Society is the independent scientific academy of the UK, dedicated to promoting excellence in science. Its journal, Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society of London, is the world’s longest running international science journal, and the volume that came out of the conference is called The Science of Well-Being. This was the Society’s first ever conference on this subject.
The specific issue is Series B, Volume 359, Number 1449, Pages 1329-1451. Edited by Huppert, Baylis and Keverne. (Published 29th September 2004; ISSN 0962-8436.)
The Royal Society two-day Discussion Meeting was open to the public, but the speakers then took part in a final day of round-table ‘think tanking’, courtesy of The Novartis Foundation in Portland Place, London.
The Science of Well-Being
I was delighted when Oxford University Press, 2005, invited Felicia Huppert, Barry Keverne and myself to jointly produce a book on our theme of The Science of Well-Being, building on the foundations of our Royal Society Discussion Meeting of November 2003.

My own chapter in this landmark Oxford book, is called:
Relationship with Reality – its role in the well-being and accomplishments of young people. Nick discusses the role of fantasising, and the everyday consumption of screen fiction, all of which can insidiously accumulate to atrophy a young person’s ability to cope well with the psychological gravity & relationship demands of the Real Life around them.
