The eternal rivalry between pleasure and insight about the good and happy life represents the main question of Plato’s Philebus. With the rapprochement from different perspectives, Plato finally gets to the conclusion, that the happy life consists in a good mix of pleasure and insight. Within the scope of his hassle, Plato develops a very differentiated and interesting conception of pleasure. Thereby he gets to the conclusion that pleasure is influenced by opinions and that it sometimes even consist of an opinion.
