I argue that happiness lies in activity that is (1) for the sake of ends that give our lives meaninginfo-icon, (2) in accordance with practical wisdom and emotional soundness, and (3) inextricable from the relationships and other pursuits that make us who we are. I draw on the work of ancient philosophers like Aristotleinfo-icon, Epictetus, and Cicero, treating happiness from a practical perspective: happiness is the ultimate goal for practical deliberation, a good life that each of us wants to give himself.
