Abstract

Comments on the original article by McNulty and Fincham (see record 2011-15476-001). The authors indicated the need to think beyond positive psychology. In particular, they argued that positive psychology needs "to move beyond labeling psychological traits and processes as positive." In general, the current author agrees with the two authors on the need for a "situated" positive psychology that is able to address the context in which we spend our lives. However, their suggestions have a critical flaw: They do not clearly distinguish between psychology and positive psychology. The current author lists a number of suggestions on ways to overcome this issue with a different approach. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved).
