Positive psychology studies the strengths that enable individuals to thrive and is founded on the belief that people want to cultivate their best virtues and traits; that we want to enhance our lives by embracing our best selves. But we are imperfect creatures. How do we realize our best selves and flourish in the face of our frailty, vice, and suffering?
This work addresses the human condition in its entirety and discusses the pathways to flourishing in light of the everyday limitations that we all must face. The authors address what they call the ""breathless optimism"" of positive psychology in this unique and approachable volume filled with original research and case studies.
This book explains how human dependency, limits, and suffering are not just negatives to be overcome. Rather they are part of our journey towards healing and development.
Frailty, Suffering, and Vice: Flourishing in the Face of Human Limitations is a vital corrective for the conceptual and practical limitations of contemporary scholarship, reminding us all that understanding our limitations is essential to living the best kind of life.
