Posted on September 22, 2008 by



Ziyad Marar is the author of The Happiness Paradox, it reflects his interest in the way philosophy and psychology can contribute to a better understanding of modern identity. His forth-coming book, Deception (Art of Living), looks at our relationship with the truth, and asks whether it’s possible (or even desirable) to live a truly honest life.

Ziyad was born in Baghdad, Iraq in 1966 and lived in the Middle East until the age of 10 before moving to London where he still lives. He has worked as Editorial Director at Sage Publications for the last decade. He holds a BSc in psychology (Exeter University), an MA in the philosophy and psychology of language, and did several years of post-graduate research in this field (London University).
