Status psychologii jako nauki społecznej a wartość badań nad jakością życia
Rocznik: 2018 Tom: 24 Numer: 3
Despite the vast knowledge concerning factors determining the level of quality of life accumulated in social sciences there are still difficulties with its application to improve human existence. Limited possibilities of rational moulding of this feature may be traced back to the dichotomous approach to social and psychological determinants of the course of human life (the conflict between psychological individualism and sociological holism). Resorting to dimensional thinking may be a solution to this problem. By analysing various functions played by imagination in the lives of both individuals and communities it has been demonstrated how imagination can be used to improve the quality of life.
