“Supporting human flourishing” is a goal of governments and societies, yet the construct may appear hard to define. We discuss the emerging science of pleasure and flourishing, insights into the brain mechanisms of meaning making and thriving, and the potential for interdisciplinary studies to advance this promising scientific field.
