- Jul 22, 2014Thomas,
Yes, they reject the medical model, but not the materialistic assumptions of the medical model (viz. that human beings are naught but atoms, genes, and neurotransmitters).
The term positive psychology was actually invented by the humanistic psychologist, Abraham Maslow four decades before Martin Seligman got into the area. Yet you'll never hear Maslow's name mentioned by the psychological positivists.
Nor God, gods, or eternal verities. It's the same old Epicureanism with a new name.
