I'm glad to have found this forum. I'm particularly interested in the ideas of Epicurus, and I have always been. For a long time I have felt that pleasure is the driving motivation for any action a person willingly chooses to do, and this rings very true for me in my own life. I've found it impossible to separate pleasure from human motivation, even in utilitarian and Stoic principles which claim to separate themselves from this intrinsic human hormone.
Having become familiar with Epicurus and now, reading Lucretius, I am excited to enter such a strong and cohesive philosophical sphere of thought with which I can further educate myself.
Hope to see everyone around, cheers!
