(p.1) Introduction
The Good Life

Michael A Bishop

Oxford University Press

Philosophers who study well-being appear stuck in a never-ending stalemate. And psychologists who study well-being appear incapable of providing a clear account of their discipline, Positive Psychology. This introduction describes the overall plan of this book as an attempt to use some conventional philosophy of science to stitch together the methods of psychology and philosophy to form an inclusive approach to the study of well-being. This approach can then be used to resolve the stalemate problem for philosophers and the foundation problem for psychologists.

Keywords:   well-being, Positive Psychology, philosophy, inclusive approach
