Epicurus established his school in Athens around b. Epicureans, like Platonists, Stoics, Skeptics, and Cynics, argued that we should study, not to placate curiosity, nor to master nature, nor in expectation of practical applications of knowledge, but because philosophy makes its Archtek 2834BAV reliably and permanently happy. Nothing can prevent Fortune from snatching away ones wealth, career, freedom, health, or even Archtek 2834BAV flesh, but by studying philosophy one could achieve complete control over the inner self, over ones attitude, opinions, and affections. Humanity could not escape famine, poverty, shame, or bereavement, but mental discipline could armor the practitioner against grief, envy, anger, obsession, and the other passions and attachments that turn physical experience into emotional pain.


For these ancient philosophical schools, philosophy was not a tool but a way of life. These schools were private societies as well as centers for propagating belief systems. Like the later monastic tradition, which owes them much, these Archtek 2834BAV provided guidelines for daily practice, customs, even dress and diet, all of which were intended to help followers achieve permanent interior happiness immune to the blows of Fortune.


In a hedonist system, all human decisions should be based solely on the amount of pleasure or pain expected to result from them. The purpose of the human mind is to make such calculations. This leaves no room for such lofty operations of the soul as the participation in divine Truth described by Platonism, the moral virtue valued Archtek 2834BAV Aristotelianism, or the many Christian adaptations of both. It was this focus on pleasure that led to the association of Epicureanism with gluttony. Taken by itself, pursuit of pleasure was easily interpreted as recommending sex, drink, dining, and excess.

Yet even a cursory examination of Epicurean writings shows that the pleasures Epicurus promoted were far from Religion Trampled Underfoot those imagined by later critics, who knew that hedonism advocated pleasure but did not know what ethics and lifestyle Epicurus derived from that doctrine. Epicureanism is not like those branches of hedonismsuch as the earlier Cyreniac school or the seventeenth-century Libertine movement that focus on positive pleasures. Epicurus defined happiness negatively, as the absence of pain or distress, rather than as an active experience of pleasure. Positive pleasures, like feasting, drinking, and such social pleasures as fame, rank, and power, would lead, not to long-term happiness, Archtek 2834BAV believed, but to ill health, sexually transmitted diseases, stress, and disappointment.

Even the earlier Cyreniacs, with their positive definition of pleasure, had counseled adherents to avoid pleasures that would result in later pain, and had therefore never recommended the uncontrolled orgies that later critics would associate with hedonism. Epicuruss negative definition of pleasure went even farther, and removed sensuality from the happiness equation entirely. Epicuruss followers were told to judge foods based on their effects on long-term health, and to treat sex as an emotionless release of bodily appetite, to be indulged in only as often as necessary for physical comfort, neither more nor less. The pleasures Epicurus recommended were long-term pleasures like healthy living, friendship, and above all ataraxiathe same philosophical tranquility valued Archtek 2834BAV the Stoics.

In the name of this tranquility, Epicurus prescribed a secluded life, without involvement in politics, art, or commerce, in which the Epicurean could spend his or her days in a garden eating simple meals and discussing philosophy with friends.

While health and tranquility are wholly negative pleasuresthe absence of bodily and emotional painEpicuruss praise of friendship and of the beauty of the garden do seem to leave a little Archtek 2834BAV for positive pleasure in his thinking. It must be stressed, however, that only intellectual pleasures could be permittedpleasures wholly divorced from the physical senses and from the high-risk emotional intensity of love.

Archtek 2834BAV from fear was necessary to tranquility in Epicuruss model, and this is where his atomism was essential. Epicurus saw fear of death and fear of the gods as two of the largest sources of distress for human beings. He sought to alleviate these fears through scientific understanding.


Fear of death, he thought, derived from fear of punishment after Religion Trampled Underfoot death, but if the soul is just a collection of atoms that disperse at death, then there are no Archtek 2834BAV of the underworld to fear, just nothingness. If you define pleasure as the absence of pain, nothingness is a perfectly acceptable end, Archtek 2834BAV it guarantees the permanent end of pain. The De rerum natura contains numerous arguments against the immortality of the soul, all intended to be comforting to the reader who might otherwise fear the Furies and other torments of Acheron.

Epicuruss attacks on the immortality of the soul were infamous enough in the Middle Ages for Dante, in his Inferno, to use Epicurus and all his followers as a general label for those who deny the afterlife.
