Book Description

Positive psychologists focus on ways that we can advance the lives of communities and individuals by studying the factors that increase positive outcomes such as happiness and life satisfaction. Evolutionary psychologists use the principles of evolution; based on Charles Darwin’s understanding of life; to help shed light on any and all kinds of psychological phenomena. This ebook brings together both fields to explore positive evolutionary psychology: the use of evolutionary psychology principles to help people and communities experience more positive and fulfilling lives.

Across eleven chapters; this ebook; Positive Evolutionary Psychology: Darwin’s Guide to Living a Richer Life (PDF) describes the basic ideas of both evolutionary and positive psychology; elaborates on the integration of these two fields as a way to help advance the human condition; discusses several domains of human functioning from the perspective of positive evolutionary psychology; and finally; looks with an eye toward the future of work in this emerging and dynamic field. Over the past few decades; evolutionary psychologists have begun to crack the code on such phenomena as happiness; gratitude; resilience; community; and love. This ebook describes these facets of the human experience in terms of their evolutionary origins and proposes how we might guide people to optimally experience such positive phenomena in their everyday lives.
