Comment of the week
“I never bought the idea that stoicism and epicureanism are rival philosophies. While the greatness of the stereotypical connoisseur is at odds with stoicism, it is at odds with truly embracing the joys in life – decadence without temper becomes uncomfortable and ultimately unsatisfactory. Constant orgies (of every taste) counteract the actual Epicurean ideal.
A true Stoic, guided by discerning taste, can grasp Epicurus’ goal of humble and sustained pleasure more than anyone who heaps indulgence when stale. “
