The “Carpe Diem” philosophy reflected in of many of Horace’s poems represents Epicureanism.

Epicurus believed that pleasure is the greatest good, and the way that people attain pleasure is to live a modest life, gaining knowledge about the world and its limits. According to Epicureanism, leading this type of life led the person to a state of tranquility, or ataraxia, which allowed him to be free from fear. Furthermore, it also lead him to a state of being which was absent from bodily pain, or aponia.

The combination of these states of being allowed the person to reach a state of total happiness.

Embrace the pleasures available in everyday life instead of relying on remote aspirations for the future.
