Letter on Happiness
Bargain Books are non-returnable.A best-seller in Europe following its original publication in 1993, this littel book takes on a big subject, offering enduring guidelines from the Greek philosopher Epicurus for achieving lasting happiness. In a letter to his friend Menoecceus, Epicurus gives sound advice on increasing life's pleasures, not through hedonistic pursuits, as commonly assumed, but through intelligence, morality, and decency. Based on a new translation of Epicurus to Menoecceus and complete with the original Greek text, Letter on Happiness expounds upon basic philosophical inquiries--concerning pleasure, longevity, death, and desire--that are as relevant today as they were in ancient Greece, all in a compact, attractive package that makes a thoughtful gift for any occasion.
