Aristotle in Las Vegas

 

 

Aristotle said: “We think pleasure must be mixed into happiness; and it is agreed that the activity expressing wisdom is the pleasantest of the activities expressing virtue. At any rate, philosophy seems to have remarkably pure and firm pleasures; and it is reasonable for those who have knowledge to spend their lives more pleasantly than those who seek it.” Nicomachean Ethics X, 7, 1177a 25
