Paradox Of Hedonism

Reply Sat 29 May, 2010 12:56 pm
Why is it that happiness or pleasure cannot be acquired directly. What is unique about happiness. You (or at least myself) would think that using science we would be able to find easy ways to feel pleasure. And considering that everything that we see and feel could be linked with a science explanation, why can't neuroscience ect. find easy ways to make people happy.
But then again, if pleasure was so easy to aquire wouldn't it stop feeling like pleasure as this is probably just a function of how the brain works.
I guess this just turns out to be another problem concerning the relationship between consciousness and science.

It is easy to find things that are pleasurable to experience. It is harder to find things that give life satisfaction. Because different people have different ideas about what a good life is.
