In describing ones attempt to achieve happiness Aristotle doesn't limit himself to one form of happiness. Aristotle describes three different forms of happiness one can achieve; one through political life, one through active life (sought through practicing virtue in the city) and one through philosophical happiness in relation to theoria ("A kind of life devoted entirely to the activity of the mind") (Hadot 78).
