Happiness is linked to pleasure (or really, your freedom from pain). By cultivating pleasures that avoid subsequent pain, we can live a happy life. We need three goods: friends, time to think, and self-sufficiency. Without these, we can never be happy, even if we are loaded with cash. Epicurus advises us to look in the right place for happiness (even though we are often deceived by society and advertising about where to find it).
1) Describe Epicurus’s views on the origins/causes of sadness and unhappiness.
Please give clear and non-question begging answers (no “he is right because he does the thing that is right”, etc.)
