    Grafting modern research onto Confucian philosophy

    Grafting modern research onto Confucian philosophy, we can go back to our original question and say that happiness is a very personal combination of genetics, actions, and beliefs.


    Can we rewrite sentence above as following?

    If/when we graft modern research onto Confucian philosophy, we can go back to our original question and say that happiness is a very personal combination of genetics, actions, and beliefs.

    Your source is too vague. Please give us a link to the section from which you have quoted, or more context - such as the vocabulary points under discussion.

    "Study found that students with the highest levels of happiness and the fewest signs of depression were those with strong friendship and family networks. Religion facilitates happiness in a similar manner.
    Once again, a review of a large number of research studies on the links between religion and happiness has concluded that there is a positive correlation between religious commitment and higher levels of perceived well-being and self-esteem.

    Grafting modern research onto Confucian philosophy, we can go back to our original question and say that happiness is a very personal combination of genetics, actions, and beliefs. In the future, it may become a standard practice for therapists to suggest interventions that boost happiness levels including thanking people, writing letters to old friends, and hanging out with family. Who knew that learning to feel good could feel so good?"
