*Well-being and affective states*
A two-day international workshop

Université Clermont Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand
14-15 November 2019

*Call for papers :*
Although the philosophy of emotions and the philosophy of well-being have
both undergone major developments in recent decades, they have rarely been
addressed together. This is surprising, since affective states are closely
linked with well-being and happiness. For example, having positive emotions
or being in a good mood may be necessary for well-being. But what are the
exact relations between these states ? In order to answer this question,
this workshop aims to examine the following issues :
- What is the nature of affective states such as emotions, moods and
desires, and do they constitute a specific type of epistemic access to our
well-being ?
- Are affective states discrete causes or constituents of well-being ?
- How do we distinguish between happiness and well-being ? Is it possible
to draw the distinction by appealing to affective states only or do we have
to appeal to other psychological states as well ?
- Can we measure well-being by focusing on affective states ? Are there
better measures, independent of affective states ?
