Le plaisir qu'est vivre : cheminer consciemment entre les méthodes d'Épicure et de Spinoza

Abstract : Whether they are religious, political or social, beliefs arise from ignorance and lead to superstition, fear and inactivity. The consequence is serious : people are waiting for living during their whole life. Epicurous and Spinoza's ethics rise against a preposterous imagination and disorder induced by ignorance. Therefore, both of them choose to turn life towards an active and conscious understanding of the world, others, and ourselves. To question what we think and what we know – in order to have a real understanding of things, and thus know how to place ourselves in accordance with our possibility within the constraint of the world – gives us freedom of action inside that limits. This present work links two ways which start from an analysis of people's disorder, learn of that a certain diagnostic and propose therapeutics. The common aim of our author is crucial because it concerns everyone : it is about finding bliss in living.
