In an earlier paper (Kashdan Biswas-Diener & King 2008) we outlined a critique of the distinction being made between eudaimonic and hedonic forms of happiness. That paper seems to have had the desired effect in stimulating discourse on this important subject as evidenced by a number of responses from our colleagues. In this paper we address these responses collectively. In particular we outline common intellectual ground with the responding authors as well as points of difference.
