For Epicurus the aim of life was pleasure; the highest pleasure was absence of pain; pleasure of the mind was preferable to that of the body. The soul dies with the body, so we must not fear death or afterlife; the gods exist but do not concern themselves with humanity or natural phenomena (all of which can be explained scientifically); we should avoid public life and emotional commitments in order to escape the pains likely to be caused by them. The physical world was explained by the atomic theory adapted from Democritus. Stoicism . After the death of Zeno of Citium, the Stoic school was headed by Cleanthes and Chrysippus, and its teachings were carried to Rome in 155 by Diogenes of Babylon. There its tenets were made popular by Panaetius, friend of the great general Scipio Aemilianus, and by Posidonius, who was a friend of Pompey (see your textbook if you don't recognize these names); Cicero drew heavily on the works of both.

Extractions: PAGES FROM THE HISTORY OF THE INDIAN SUB-CONTINENT The Aryan Invasion Controversy Ever since the theory of the Aryan invasion of India was first propounded, the theory has remained a subject of intense debate and controversy. This essay examines some of the arguments both for and against the theory and concludes that while an invasion may have taken place, the impact and the significance of such an invasion on Indian civilization should not be exaggerated. Instead, this opinion argues that Indian civilization whether Hindu, Buddhist or Jain or any other, developed primarily from the unique (and varied) conditions of Indian geography and the human exertion that went into modifying those conditions to advance agriculture and settled civilization rather than from any particular invasion that may have occurred in a period of considerable antiquity.

As an example Hutchinson referred to the book Made For Happiness by Jean Vanier. All we can hope for now is for Vanier to get the spelling correct. The second announcement was with respect to the Scribes and Scholars project. Hutchinson noted that as far as he or any of his colleagues were aware, a project like this has never before been attempted. The purpose of the project is to show how much one can retrodict of an ancient text. Next Hutchinson moved on to his lecture on Aristippus of Cyrene. He referred to Aristippus as a coulourful figure who forms a bridge between the Epicureans and Socrates; this bridge however is both tenuous and arguable for many. Here Hutchinson turned our focus back to the central figure of Socrates, and noted that Aristippus was a man who studied with Socrates yet had ideas and students of his own. It seems to me that Socrates also encouraged his associates to practice self-discipline with regards to food and drink and sex and sleep and heat and cold and physical exertion by discourses like the one which follows.
