The contribution of diversity to happiness research.

The significant contributions of Kashdan and Colleagues and Waterman are acknowledged and some suggestions are brought forward. In particular qualitative studies and a cross-cultural perspective taking into account non-Western traditions are needed to disentangle happiness and related constructs. Moreover the importance of contextualizing the eudaimonic construct of optimal experience within the framework of psychological selection is highlighted.
