The essay moves from Rousseau's conception of the nation as the starting point of a genealogical path which aims to a critical analysis of the term happiness in its economic-governmental understanding. The latter was historically accomplished during the 19th and 20th century by the welfare State, under the name of 'wellbeing'.
