Why Prudence is Good
From the mind of Epicurus…
Epicurus is an Ancient Greek Philosopher.
He thinks that pleasure is the highest good in life.
But he defines pleasure as “Health in the body and Tranquility of the Soul.” This seems OK to me.
Who doesn’t want a tranquil soul?
Well, you may ask, how does one attain this tranquil soul?
He seems to think that there are certain desires that are normal and natural and by mastering those desires, we can attain tranquility.
