Hedonism and the Pleasureless Life in Plato's Philebus

Phronesis 45 (4):257-283 (2000)
Abstract
This paper re-evaluates the role that Plato confers to pleasure in the Philebus. I argue that the mixed life of pleasure and intelligence is presented in the Philebus as a first best and not just as a second best for humans, and that, accordingly, Socrates proposes to incorporate-rather than reject-pleasure as one of the intrinsically desirable aspects of the happy life.
