/ˌbɒn.viːˈvɒnt/ (noun)

Bon vivant meaning

(also bon viveur) someone who lives well and luxuriously, pleasure seeker, an epicure who enjoys good food and drinks, foodie, gourmet


Epicureanism is a system of philosophy based on the teachings of Epicurus, founded around 307 B.C. It teaches that the greatest good is to seek modest pleasures in order to attain a state of tranquility, freedom from fear and absence from bodily pain for a person who is an epicure or bon vivant. This combination of states is held to constitute happiness in its highest form, and so Epicureanism can be considered a form of Hedonism, although it differs in its conception of happiness as the absence of pain, and in its advocacy of a simple life.
