Pragmatic Rationalism: An Introduction By Frank Robert Vivelo
Paperback: $16.48
Ships in 3-5 business days
Pragmatic rationalism is a coherent blend of elements from Epicureanism, Stoicism, Empiricism, and Existentialism. It holds that the ultimate goal of life is happiness—individual happiness...

It insists that individuals choose, and therefore are responsible for, all they think and feel. It rejects all emotionalism and belief systems and, instead, relies on induction and probability to guide decision making and behavior. Though an egoistic and hedonistic philosophy from the individual’s perspective, it nevertheless advocates the Golden Rule as the most useful guiding principle in interaction with others.< Less
