The Pursuit of Happiness

Yale University has a few of their courses available online for free (located via Lecturefox). The Intro to Psychology class is quite good. If you have time for just one session, check out the last class, 'The Good Life: Happiness':
...Professor Bloom ends with a review of one of the most interesting research topics in "positive psychology," happiness. What makes us happy? How does happiness vary across person and culture? What is happiness for? Students will hear how the most recent research in psychology attempts to answer these questions and learn how people are surprisingly bad at predicting what will make them happiest.
