Book Description

The question of how to live a good life and the pursuit of meaning have long been of paramount importance to humans; perhaps this is because Homo sapiens are the only creatures that are conscious of their own impending mortality. Over the course of the last few decades, empirical psychology has been a significant contributor to this endeavor. The Social Psychology of Living Well is a summary of ground-breaking work done by top scholars from around the world. It demonstrates that social psychology is the central academic field for comprehending well-being and the pursuit of meaning. A discussion of fundamental philosophical and theoretical ideas is followed by an appraisal of the role that intentional, motivated activity and self-control play in achieving life happiness. This discussion draws on the fields of philosophy, evolutionary theory, and psychology. In this article, we will address the roles that cognitive and emotional processes play in the promotion of a happy and meaningful life, as well as the influence of social, interpersonal, and cultural elements. This e-book will be of interest to students, researchers, and practitioners in the behavioral and social sciences. It will also be of interest to laypersons who are interested in improving the quality of human life and understanding the fundamentals of happiness.
