Summary
Can modern psychology move beyond a focus on disease? How can it help us better understand what we are to become? Martin Seligman is the founder of positive psychology, a field of study that examines healthy states - such as happiness, optimism, and strength of character. In this TEDTalk, he characterizes psychology both as a field of study and as an approach to the human experience, in which a "patient" is actually a practitioner who develops skills for well-being.
