Being hooked to that machine even for a while might bring us hedonic happiness. On the other hand eudaimonic is when the good life results from living in accordance with your diamon in other words your true self (Baumgardner & Crothers, 2009). For instance we all do not like the pain of sadness or disappointment however those feelings makes us who were are.

The first view that Nagel decides to discuss is the view that death is bad for us because it deprives us of more life. Most people are in the view that life is good; even though some experiences in life can be bad, and sometimes tragic, the nature of life itself is a very positive state. Nagel also adds that when the experiences of life are put aside, this state is still positive, and not simply "neutral" (2). Nagel goes further to point out some important observations about the value of life. Mere "organic survival" cannot be said to be a component of value (2).

Friendship is a great and essential part of modern life. It offers escape from annoying family and awkward social positions. A true and good friend will help someone get through their difficulties with compassion and love without judgement. In A Separate Peace the main characters, Gene and Phineas, claim to be good friends, however, there are events that come to pass that make both the characters and the readers rethink that status.

To flourish we must combine both selflessness and happiness together as one so that we may find our true selves we never knew could have been there.
While someone else may hold a different ethical viewpoint, I have found, upon taking the Ethical Lens Inventory, my own personal ethical viewpoint to lie right in the middle of the Results Lens and the Reputation Lens. The things I value the most are personal independence and equality between all people. Also, I believe in overcoming obstacles with reasoning and courage. One of my greatest strengths is having compassion, and nothing is more important to me than that specific trait. However, where there is strength, there is also weakness.

I rather have criminals and mentally ill persons medicated than having to think all the time about what could happen. I know that this way I can be sure in some way that I live in a not totally but in somehow safe world. I think it is sad that government has to force people to be medicated but it is very
Be harmonious: - I believe to live together and get along with everyone is a “delicacy” that we all long for. Don’t change who you are to please others: - I believe it’s not worth becoming a completely different person simply to make other people
