Speech: Martin Seligman on positive psychology

What I found very interesting about this talk was the extensive analysis of Happiness, a traditionally vague concept which Seligman divides into three sub-concepts: pleasure, the good life and the meaningful life. He goes on to explain it in a way that really did make sense to me! /od


Martin Seligman talks about psychology -- as a field of study and as it works one-on-one with each patient and each practitioner. As it moves beyond a focus on disease, what can modern psychology help us to become?
