Socrates on Happiness

Socrates (469 – 399 BC) claimed that his wisdom and insights arose merely in “knowing that he knew nothing.”
He argued that happiness is not just bestowed on a select few, but could actually be obtained by human endeavor. In his view, happiness and virtue are inextricably linked.
The Greek word eudaimonia used for happiness means “human flourishing”.
