Eudaimonia – Eudaimonia is a difficult word to translate into English. It is a Greek word commonly translated as ‘happiness’. In Greek philosophy, Eudaimonia means achieving the best conditions possible in every sense. It was the goal of philosophy, to fulfill our unique potential as human beings, to become better people.
For me, dolphins personify ‘Eudaimonia’ the best. With a friendly smile on their face that emanates infinite happiness. My admiration towards these animals and their smiling face will stay unchanged even though the fact is the famous ‘dolphin smile’ is not actually a smile at all. Their head shape is fixed, and we are tricked by pareidolia. So, we should not assume that dolphins are always happy.
