"Let us imagine a man..."

“Let us imagine a man living in the continuous enjoyment of numerous and vivid pleasures alike of body and of mind, undisturbed either by the presence or by the prospect of pain: what possible state of existence could we describe as being more excellent or more desirable?” — Torquatus, in Cicero’s De Finibus, Bonorum et Malorum.


It’s a great explication. Who indeed could be more excellent?
