Human flourishing can be defined as the full development of the potential of humans. A human being flourishes if her capacities and abilities have developed to full bloom. Beyond this general description, however, there is a diversity of views about what human flourishing means, what contributes to human flourishing and the ways in which parents and teachers can further the child's development into a flourishing adult. The central aim of Lynne's PhD project is to investigate education for human flourishing with attention to both the aim and the means of education and upbringing.
