('eudaimonia' in Greek). Please write an
essay about Aristotle's concept of eduaimonia that answers the following
1. What, in your own words, does Aristotle mean by
2. For Aristotle, does the highest good of happiness include
those moments when you experience intense pleasure? Why or why not?
3. If, for Aristotle, eudaimonia is not simply a matter of
experiencing pleasure, what else might it involve?
Please ensure that your essay addresses each component of
the assigned questions and that your answer is well organized, uses excellent,
college-level prose, and makes judicious use of textual evidence. Your essay should be 600-900 words long.
