Using Aristotle’s understanding of happiness as edaimonia, please describe someone who you know personally in whom “happiness”and outward appearances are most at odds. This could be someone who exhibits happiness despite having every reason not to, or inversely, someone who simply cannot be happy despite having every advantage. In either case, what specific virtues or vices does this person exhibit, and what do these say about his or her character?
And depending on whether you have chosen someone judged to be happy or unhappy, what would it take for this person to move to the opposite state?

Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook. Sources ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite them in-line. Also, only use sources within the five-year range.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
