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... More > identified as psychic tranquility or untroubledness—and attempts to pursue that goal in the most practical, efficacious manner possible.
