PHILOSOPHY - History: Epicurus’ Cure for Unhappiness [HD]Wireless Philosophy

In this video, Monte Johnson (University of California, San Diego) discusses the “tetrapharmakos” or “four-part remedy” developed by the ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus (341-270 BC) and his followers to treat unhappiness and anxiety. The tetrapharmakos consists of four maxims which encapsulate the Epicurean outlook on god, life, death, pleasure, and pain. The maxims can be meditated upon in order to alleviate worries and concerns that continue to plague us as much as they did the ancients.

           Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other
           pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy. 
                                                                                                                                          Mahatma Gandhi
