A Look Inside
Main Description
The subject of this study is a moral philosophical debate of the early modern age centering around eudemonia or happiness in earthly life. Combined with this was an upgrading of pleasure (voluptas) and a new interest in Epicure. The aim is not a doxographic presentation of different philosophical positions, but the analysis of their textual enactment. The review of Latin and vernacular texts indicates a context of discussion in which advocates of a pleasurable or virtuous life do not collide head on, but rather enter into complicated alliances.
