Aristotle and Epicurus

2. A question relating Aristotle and Epicurus
In Principle Doctrines XII, Epicurus writes, “Without the study of
nature, there can be no enjoyment of pure pleasure.” (cpk 143; compare
XI). Is this basically the same thought as Aristotle has in mind when he
writes that “All men by nature desire to know” (cpk 129)? Or is Epicurus
saying something importantly different? To address this question well, you
should review Aristotle, cpk 129-132, and Epicurus, cpk. 139-145. Do
Aristotle and Epicurus have basically the same view of wisdom and the
value of knowledge, or is there an important difference?
