The good, the true, and the beautiful: XXV. Congress of the German Society for Philosophy
The Hellenistic schools – Stoics, Epicureans, and Sceptics – agree that someone’s epistemic states (her true and false opinions, her lack of knowledge, her cognitions) are of essential importance for her character. In this respect, they oppose Aristotle, who gives more weight to non-rational parts of the soul. However, they differ in other respects; in particular, they disagree on whether and in what ways we can attain knowledge and how knowledge is related to happiness.
