The Epicureans claim that the “Good Life” is a life of maximum happiness. Wouldn’t that mean that the life of a self-satisfied, drunken stumble-bum, like Barney from ‘The Simpsons’ would be a better life than that of a self-sacrificing saint like Mother Teresa?
Is that really what their theory would say? Why, or why not?
If you don’t know much about Barney, or The Simpsons, just think of any alcoholic.
