Una propuesta para los angeles felicidad

Frente a los angeles mística de las palabras vacías, de los consuelos imposibles y de los premios o castigos de otro mundo, Epicuro levantó los angeles firme muralla de un mensaje revolucionario. Con ello alumbró, de una luz distinta, los angeles democratización del cuerpo humano, el apego a los angeles vida y a los angeles desamparada carne de los hombres, entre cuyos sutiles y misteriosos vericuetos alentaba los angeles alegría y los angeles tristeza, l. a. serenidad y el dolor, l. a. generosidad y los angeles crueldad. Y, sobre todo, imaginó una educación y política del amor, única forma posible y esperanzada de seguir viviendo.

Epicuro lanzó uno de los mensajes más creadores del pensamiento filosófico que, por razones no muy difíciles de entender, ha sido tergiversado por los que sintieron amenazada los angeles hipocresía de l. a. que se alimentan. l. a. filosofía de l. a. corporeidad y del placer no fue, en ningún momento, esa grosera versión ideológica que una buena parte de l. a. tradición nos ha entregado.

Entre otras muchas cosas, el epicureísmo nos puso en camino para superar, desde una revolucionaria thought de l. a. existencia, l. a. doble ethical, l. a. doble o múltiple verdad, bajo los angeles luz que se levanta desde el reconocimiento genuine del cuerpo, de su libertad y de su forzosa y solidaria instalación en el mundo.
