Philosophy Bro, what the fuck is Happiness?

Mein Lieblingsblog für die nächsten paar Minuten: Philosophy Bro (via MeFi): „Philosophy is hard - I read and summarize, so you don't have to, man.“ Hier ein paar meiner Favorites:

Marcus Aurelius' "Meditations": A Summary: „Look, there's a lot of unavoidable bullshit out there. Tons of it, in fact, and there is precisely nothing you can do about it. The sooner you accept that, the better your life will be; rather than bitching and complaining, learn to deal with it. Or, of course, you could keep whining like a little bitch; sure, maybe that'll fix everything.“

G. W. F. Hegel's "Lordship and Bondage": A Summary: „Self-consciousness is a tricky motherfucker. Like every other idea, it has to encounter its opposite before it can be complete. Why? Because otherwise, it's way too fucking abstract. Have you ever had a friend get really high and say, "Bro, I think I understand ultimate reality!" And then after you listen to his explanation about how we're just a simulation or a computer game or some bullshit you say, "That's fucking retarded.“

Jean-Paul Sartre's "Being and Nothingness": A Summary: „First of all, fuck Kant.“

Immanuel Kant's "How is Metaphysics in General Possible?": A Summary: „There is a ton of shit you can reason successfully about. Hell, math provides literally an infinite number of things you can reason about, including, conveniently enough, actual infinities. Still, some bros never have enough, and the stubborn fucks insist on trying to reason about experience. Of course, they all run into the same problem: it can't. fucking. be done.“

Aristotle's "Nicomachean Ethics, Book I": A Summary: „Everyone pretty much agrees that that final good is happiness. Who doesn't want to be happy? What asshole is moping around going, "Fuck happiness. I hate being happy." No one, that's who. The problem is, not everyone agrees on what happiness is or how to get it, which is what I'm here to clear up for you guys. Some people think that happiness is pleasure, which is just stupid. How could it be? Pleasures conflict all the time. When we're presented with two competing pleasures, it's a tough fucking choice, and we always agonize about it; when two options make us equally happy, though, we shrug and say, "I don't give a flying fuck, bro. Honestly, I'm happy either way."“
