Michael Bishop on Unifying the Philosophy and Psychology of Well-being

Michael Bishop discusses how to unify the philosophy and psychology of well-being.  In particular, he discusses his ‘Positive Causal Network’ theory of well-being, according to which well-being is constituted by causal networks of positive feelings, attitudes, traits and outcomes.  He discusses how this theory can unify the study of positive psychology and account for the value of well-being.  You can view his book here:
