Epicureanist Ideas

Some of the basic ideas of Epicureanism is to aim at pleasure, not fleeting pleasures, but lasting intelligent pleasures, thinking about the outcome of your actions. They also believed that the gods and universe were meaningless. They believed that the gods would not affect their lives, therefore not paying any attention to them. All in all Epicureanists are similar to Hedinists, living to please themselves.
