...and the Philosophy of Pleasure
I never advise rushing to give up on ethical ideals. Just because some individual, or group, thinks X is good does not mean it actually is so. And while it might be easy to see pleasure as good and finding virtue good more difficult, that does not mean the latter is not the better of the two.
Nicely stated. And I appropriately had two glasses of red wine prior to reading.
Aristippus could have used a few more lessons from the man known for making the weaker argument seem stronger and the stronger argument seem weaker.

A bit self/centered for my tastes, lol, but also a refreshing counter balance to NE USAs traditional Catholic-Puritan sensibilities which make any pleasure the work of the devil.
How about a lil balance, eh?
Compare to Epicurus?
