I’m having a really hard time coming up with a character from a movie or literature who I think would be a decent depiction of Epicurean ethics, though. Can you?
JAWS has asked this question and it is a great way to come up with threads on separate books and movies.
If you have a suggestion to make, could you please start a thread in THIS forum: Discussion of Movies / Books / Artwork Posing Questions Related to Pursuit of Pleasure
Please start a thread with a title something like: "Gone With The Wind" - Scarlett O'Hara
That's simply an example and maybe not a good choice
But I think this would work best if each suggested Movie/Work/Character had a thread of their own, and we come back over time to develop each thread, rather than smash every suggestion into a single thread. We could go on and on and on with this topic on many different movies/works of art.
(As one example of a good depiction, although not in fiction, think of the depiction of Atticus in the "Life of Atticus" by Cornelius Nepos, which describes in detail how a devoted Epicurean lived many aspects of his life.)
