And many more.
Happiness, life satisfaction, fulfillment and meaning in life
Can science tell us anything about the meaning of life, or how to find happiness? There’s been a surge of interest recently among some research psychologists in “positive psychology” – not just finding out what’s wrong with people but what’s right with them. They’ve been investigating questions like:
- What are the characteristics of life satisfaction, and what leads to it?
- Is happiness just a string of pleasurable events, or is there something deeper?
- What kinds of happiness are there, and how do we get them?
- Does tapping into personal strengths and virtues lead to greater engagement in one’s activities?
- How can we find more meaning in life, in the work we do, or in the things we do for enjoyment?
We’ll also talk about relationships, community, attitudes and values, and a whole range of other things. Join the conversation and let us know what you think too.
