I was wondering whether Wittgenstein is a proponent of happiness being central to a life well lived. Generally, from Ronald Suter's article and what I've read about him, Id wager the answer is yes. However, I found the quote of him saying:
"I don't know why we are here, but I'm pretty sure that it is not in order to enjoy ourselves"
So I was just wondering if anyone well acquainted with him has a better insight
*"ACCORDING TO WITTGENSTEIN, the worthwhile life is one that is lived happily. He feels such a life needs no justification, for it is justified in itself. He says, "I keep on coming back to this! simply the happy life is good, the unhappy bad. And if I now ask myself: But why should I live happily, then this of itself seems to me to be a tautological question; the happy life seems to be justified, of itself, it seems that it is the only right life."2 This is why he issues the imperative, "Live happily!"
