  • Simon Burnett


This chapter details the third shock to have transpired, enabling happiness to become central to and circulate throughout modernity: the (predominantly) twenty-first-century emergence of a practicable positivity within influential psychological circles and society at large. It is affective at a micro-sociological level, supporting the meso-human relations and macro-utilitarian developments previously discussed and, in addition to the prominence of Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS) and Positive Organizational Behavior (POB), derives most notably from the formalized positive psychology movement.
