Is The Pursuit Of Happiness Futile?
Social sciences, Philosophy,
Philosophers have long been interested with the good life and how it can be achieved. Indeed, the term hedonism – maximising pleasure and minimising pain – was articulated thousands of years ago by Aristippus who was a strong advocate of immediate sensory gratification. On the other hand, Aristotle considered sensual pleasure vulgar and championed the notion that true happiness entails identifying one's qualities, cultivating them, and living life with them consistently.
