L'Art du bonheur selon les philosophes by Christophe Salaün

By Christophe Salaün

Le bonheur est-il dans le plaisir, comme le pense Épicure, ou bien consiste-t-il, ainsi que l’affirme Aristote, dans « une vie conforme à l. a. vertu » ? Ne le possédons-nous, avec Augustin, que « dans l’espérance », selon « un progrès perpétuel » (Leibniz) ou est-il, comme le dit joliment Albert Camus, « un hasard qui se prolonge » ?

Qu’il s’agisse d’en définir los angeles nature, les modalités ou encore l. a. vanité de sa recherche, les philosophes ont écrit sur le bonheur des réflexions aussi riches que variées. C’est le sujet que chacun entend trancher sans parvenir jamais à l’épuiser.

À travers un choix unique de textes philosophiques, classiques ou peu connus, cette anthologie originale suggest à chacun, plutôt que d’improbables recettes du bonheur, de reprendre pour lui-même – en philosophe – l’énigme de ce qui semble bien l. a. grande affaire de l’humanité.
