Towards Flourishing

Wissing,et.al. 2014

 

The emerging field of positive psychology has received increasing recognition in the South African context, as seen by the rapidly growing volume of South African research and its inclusion in various undergraduate training programmes at South African tertiary institutions. How do we live the good life? How do we care? What is a life well lived? What is happiness and what is a meaningful life? Is it possible to thrive and flourish in life with all its brokenness, challenges and pain? Towards flourishing is a unique South African textbook that attempts to find scientific answers to the above questions and to explore the assumptions behind them.
