adjective 1. pertaining or conducive to happiness. 2. pertaining to eudemonics or eudemonism.
Philosophers have long held that we can distinguish between eudemonic experience, or a striving towards meaning and purpose that underlies human beings' capacity to engage in complex social and cultural behavior, in contrast to the striving for more heonic or simply pleasurable experience. -- Michael Friedman, "Would a Year of Voluntary Public Service Bring Out America's Best?"

Eudemonic stems from the Greek word eudaímōn meaning "fortunate, happy." It entered English in the early 1800s.
