A Life Worth Living

Contributions to Positive Psychology

Edited by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Isabella Selega Csikszentmihalyi

Series in Positive Psychology

A Life Worth Living brings together the latest thought on Postive Psychology from an international cast of scholars. It includes historical, philosophical, and empirical views of what psychologists have found to matter for personal happiness and well-being. The contributions to this volume agree on principles of optimal development that start from purely material and selfish concerns, but then lead to ever broader circles of responsibility embracing the goals of others and the well-being of the environment; on the importance of spirituality; on the development of strengths specific to the individual.
