How are they missing? They have been around for a very long time.

What is health? Health is the absence of disease and the ability to lead a healthy lifestyle. The science of medicine and its numerous subsections deals with the treatment of diseases. Knowledge about a healthy lifestyle is also formed on the basis of scientific knowledge. A person needs to avoid risk factors, eat right, exercise, and follow a regimen. Various branches of medicine and related disciplines are also engaged in research on these topics.

What is happiness? This is the absence of psychological problems and the ability to organize your life in an optimal way. Various sections of psychology and psychiatry deal with psychological problems. As for the knowledge of how to organize your life in an optimal way, philosophers and psychologists have worked and continue to work on this from ancient times to the present. And relatively recently, for these purposes, a separate section of psychology was even created - positive psychology: "the main topics of research in positive psychology is what contributes to the achievement of people's happiness."

Another thing is that scientists have not yet received answers to many questions, but some obvious progress has already been made, as evidenced, for example, by the increase in life expectancy that is happening around the world.

Because these are normative categories, some ideals that people set of their own free will, and do not study as a given. As asked, so be it. That is, this is not a field of science, but of ideology.

there is such a science - although it is difficult to call it a science in the generally accepted sense, however, psychology and philosophy are not considered by many to be a science. This is called Biblical Science, which contains observations, recommendations, prevention, and promises for the "extraction" of happiness. Here is the wise Solomon gave this science:

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
7 Do not be wise in your eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil:
8 it will be health for your body and nourishment for your bones.
(Prov. 3: 5-8)

5 Acquire wisdom, acquire intelligence: do not forget this and do not shy away from the words of my mouth .
6 Do not leave her, and she will guard you; love her, and she will protect you.
7 The main thing is wisdom: acquire wisdom, and with all your possessions acquire understanding.
8 Highly value her, and she will exalt you; she will glorify you if you cling to her;
9 will put a beautiful wreath on your head, will bring you a splendid crown.
10 Hear, my son, and accept my words, and the years of your life will multiply to you.
11 I show you the path of wisdom, I lead you along straight paths.
12 When you walk, your course will not be hampered, and when you run, you will not stumble.
13 Hold fast to the instruction, do not leave, keep it, because it is - your life.
14 Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of the wicked;
15 leave him, do not walk on him, turn away from him and pass by;
16 for they will not sleep if do no harm; their sleep is lost if they do not bring anyone to the fall;
17 for they eat the bread of iniquity and drink the wine of theft.
18 The path of the righteous is like a radiant light, which brightens more and more until the day is full.
19 The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what they will stumble over.
20 My son! Listen to my words, and incline thine ear to my words;
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them within your heart:
22 for they are life for the one who found them, and health for his whole body.
23 Keep your heart most of all that is kept, because of it sources of life.
(Prov. 4: 5-23)

And here Christ already taught

3 Blessed ( happy ) are the poor in spirit, for of them is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
7 Blessed are the merciful, for they are they will have mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the sons of God.
10 Blessed are those cast out for righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are you when they revile you and persecute you and in every way unrighteously curse you for Me.
12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven: thus they persecuted [and] the prophets who were before you.
(Matthew 5: 3-12)

because no one still knows what it is. And if there is no subject, then there is nothing to study.

Therefore, the closest sciences "from the opposite" are medicine as such and psychiatry. Although medicine is not a science, but a field of knowledge.

How is it "no"? Anatomy, biology and medicine are about health. Psychology and philosophy are about happiness.

Or are we talking about the absence of thin brochures on this topic like "All the basic ideas" of War and Peace "by L. Tolstoy in five minutes"?
