«PHILOSOPHICAL ATTITUDE TOWARDS LIFE» IN THE LIGHT OF THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF MODERN PSYCHOLOGY

 

Abstract. The article regards the possibility of formation of «philosophical attitude towards life» with the help of the latest achievements of experimental psychology. The author of the paper is matching the discussed notion with the two main – «positive» and «negative» – psychic tendencies. From one side, we speak about positive illusion, to which human brain is prone. From the other side, we mean a greater psychic permeability to negative events and experiences. We demonstrate, that «philosophical attitude towards life» in full volume naturally resides only within a few number of individuals, who are deeply involved into creative activity.

Key words: positive illusions, adaptation, creativity, utopia, philosophical attitude towards life.
