Hey /lit/, what's some good stuff to read about stoicism? Primary or secondary sources welcome.
I've ready Aurelius, Epictetus, Seneca's letters. Who else?
Also some book on εὐδαιμονία and what it meant to the different Greeks/Romans would be cool.
Epicurænism is childish hedonism.
You know fuck all about Epicureanism. Stop posting.
'The philosophy of Epicurus (341–270 B.C.E.) was a complete and interdependent system, involving a view of the goal of human life (happiness, resulting from absence of physical pain and mental disturbance), an empiricist theory of knowledge (sensations, together with the perception of pleasure and pain, are infallible criteria), a description of nature based on atomistic materialism, and a naturalistic account of evolution, from the formation of the world to the emergence of human societies.'
OP here. Bump. Come on, I know there's a few well educated philosophy fags here who can suggest something for me.
Negative hedonism is the most sophisticated and grown up hedonism and the end game of ethics, silly :)
Nietzsche is a great critic but his positive contribution is pretty much a failure.
He knew this himself, that's why he cancelled his announced magnum opus and cannibalized what little he did have to publish his last few works.
