Philosophy 101 Assignment #1 After reading the given questions, “What would a perfectly happy life be?” and “What would the best way to get it?” I thought to myself that they were too vague to answer, and quite frankly too vague to take seriously. Although, after engaging in conversation with my mother first, followed by a close friend of mine, I realized how quickly and simply they could be answered. It must be kept in mind that there is a difference between being “perfectly happy” and being “greedy.” More often than not, people associate “happiness” with “money”, but after discussing these questions, it can be understood that there is a much more down to earth (so to speak) answer to true happiness and a practical way to achieve it. I first discussed these questions with my mother. We both think similarly, and to be honest, we did not discuss these questions in length. Quite simply put, she described a “perfectly happy” life as one filled with success and personal achievements.
