Living life for pleasure? Epicurus and you

In Uncategorized on October 26, 2009 at 8:08 pm

Nothing is enough for the man to whom enough is too little — Epicurus

An Epicurean philosophy is usually associated with the idea of living for pleasure. This view is misleading.  The founder of the sect Epicurus was in fact a minimalist whose aim was not pleasure as it is usually defined rather it was happiness.  His view of what it took to attain a sustainable state of happiness is very much the same as the urban ascetic view.

Live life as simply as you can with a moral centre.
