  1. hi 🙂 i am from India . i am a student of psychology. could you help me know if there is any valid questionnaire to measure eudaimonic happiness? where can i find one ?

  2. Some people, myself included, want to do things to serve other species to make Them happy. That in turn makes us happy. So the end goal is happiness. But a very different type of reason for happiness. An altruistic happiness.

  3. there is actually some evidence of people getting more happy if they have more money the reason in other studies people doesnt seem to get much happier after the 15000 dollars or whatever the amount is because they are measured in absolute value instead of shown in a relative value, of course one who has 15000 will not get much happier getting a couple of dollars but two-three percent richer, yes, or empirically it actually seems so. But there also evidence for people are only happier with money in some degree if they are richer than the average of the country or the ones close to them.


  5. Thank you so much for this video.  It helped me understand these concepts well enough to get an A on my last paper, even if it did take several cycles of the video!  Very clear and very accurate.

  6. thanks for this. i took a plato & aristotle class last semester but really only used politics, and hadn't really ventured too deeply into nicomachean ethics. now I'm in an augustine class, and though I'm not sure he was influences by aristotle, his concept of eudaimonism seems to match up to some extent.
