What is positive humanism?

Positive humanism is an applied humanistic philosophy based on the scientific findings of positive psychology that focuses on personal, professional, and societal flourishing.

Translation: As an applied philosophy it offers practical solutions to increase well-being.  As a humanistic philosophy, there are no appeals to the supernatural, the magical, or the mystical—the philosophy is founded on reason and critical thinking.  The philosophy is science-based, meaning it is void of the unsupported and/or exaggerated claims and the constant confusing of correlation with causality often found in the self-help genre.  The philosophy is grounded in the theories of positive psychology, which is the study of the other side of the mental health spectrum—human thriving.  The philosophy focuses on concrete strategies to help individuals in all areas of personal growth and professional success, primarily through being of prosocial acts and through distributed kindness.


 


Positive Emotion

The first element of well-being theory is positive emotion (the pleasant life) and is a cornerstone of the theory.

 


Engagement

Engagement is being so absorbed in a task that time seems to stop and you "lose self-consciousness" (also known as "Flow").

 


Relationships

The quality of one's relationships is the social aspect of well-being, and suggested by many social scientists to be the most important.

 


Meaning and Purpose

Serving a greater cause than one's own happiness that is pursued for its own sake—independent of positive emotion (e.g., suffering could bring meaning).

 


Achievement

Achievement (or accomplishment), like meaning, is pursued for its own sake and can measured both subjectively and objectively.
