  7. Wallace I. Matson (1998). Hegesias; the Death-Persuader; or, the Gloominess of Hedonism. Philosophy 73 (4):553-557.
    Hegesias (3d c.BC), as hedonist, held that the sage will kill himself. For: One should pursue pleasure and avoid pain. But life is virtually certain to contain more pain than pleasure. Therefore death, which is neither pleasurable nor painful, is better than life. The flaw in the argument lies in the underlying game-theoretical model of life as a game in which play and payoff are distinct.

No one who has lived through the last thirty years is unaware of the spectacular alterations of behavior norms that have occurred in most Western societies.

Socrates occupied himself with the excellences of character, and in connection with them became the first to raise the problem of universal definitions.
