On the importance of distinguishing hedonia and eudaimonia when contemplating the hedonic treadmill.

Abstract

Comments on the article by E. Diener, R. E. Lucas, and C. N. Scollon which provided a revision of the adaptation theory of well-being. The current author suggests that consideration of the emerging distinction between hedonic and eudaimonic well-being was missing from the original article and is worthy of scholarly attention.
