Literature Review

  • Alex C. Michalos
Part of the Recent Research in Psychology book series (PSYCHOLOGY)


As far as I have been able to discern, the four remaining domains of investigation do not form any particular conceptual cluster. Nevertheless, as indicated in Volume One, previous research has shown that each of the domains considered here has been shown to have some influence on the overall quality of peoples’ lives and their subjective well-being in particular. The structure of this chapter simply follows the book’s subtitle. The review moves from the domain of religion (Section 1.2), to university education (1.3), recreation activity (1.4) and health (1.5). The research literature of latter domain is considerably richer than that of the other three domains. So, most of the review pertains to the domain of health.
