Epicureanism and Stoicism

There are many differences (moral conception of man, ontology, metaphysics, …) between Epicureanism and Stoicism, two of the most known philosophy schools:

– Epicureanism advocates a minimum happiness, but a philosophy of the will.

– The Stoics (Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, …) advocate a philosophy of renunciation, an acceptance of fate.
