This chapter exposes the theoretical background of Flow of Consciousness Theory, underlining the connections between Optimal Experience and the process of social change. The concept of cultural artifact is revised. The relevance of Flow for the individual, social and cultural development is stressed. Discussion is devoted to letting the presence of the experience of flow emerge (both explicitly admitted or implicitly assumed) within theories and models not belonging to Positive Psychology domain.
