The Best Within Us explores the many ways the philosophic concept of
eudaimonia is being employed in psychology.
Eudaimonia is an ancient philosophy that today informs the field
of positive psychology, specifically in the study of flourishing and the
fulfillment of potentials, identity development, happiness, and well-being.
Eudaimonic functioning not only yields quality of life benefits to the
individual, it also contributes to caring, intimate personal relationships, and
engagement in prosocial activities.
This book is for personality and social psychologists with teaching
and research interests in positive psychology, happiness, well-being, self-acceptance and self-esteem, identity, meaning in life, self-determination and
autonomy, and motivation. It is also for graduate students seeking research
ideas pertaining to quality of life. 2013. 304 pages. Hardcover.
