Public lecture: Epicurus’ happiness (Belgrade, Serbia)
New Acropolis organized an online lecture pertaining to happiness. Life and the work of Epicurus served as an inspiration for reflection on the roads which lead to it. There is no doubt that all the people seek happiness, but they do it in different ways: some search for it in the outer things, some within themselves. For Epicurus, happiness is principally joy of the soul, a state in which a man is not conditioned by superficial pleasures, but is serene, free and discerning, always ready to learn and, in accordance with that, ready to change.
