Eudaimonia, sometimes anglicized as eudaemonia, is a Greek word commonly translated as happiness or welfare; however, “human flourishing” has been proposed as a more accurate translation.

Etymologically, it consists of the words “eu” (“good”) and “daimōn” (“spirit”).

In Aristotle’s works (384 BCE), eudaimonia was used as the term for the highest human good, and so it is the aim of practical philosophy, including ethics and political philosophy, to consider what it really is, and how it can be achieved.

It is the spirit of goodness or the good that we seek for its own sake and not for the purpose of achieving any other good. What about you? Did the “Spirit of the Good” visit you today???
