Are Stoics allowed to enjoy such pleasures as good food, wine, art, music, making love, et cetera?
Yes, of course. We are pantheists. The Stoic God is in ALL things. We value our reason above all, because that is our special gift from Nature,
but our creator is also in the eyes and ears and nose and taste buds and kinesthetic sense – as well as in the mind.
As those who chase the greatness of the human condition it is illogical to think that bans be placed upon the very natures that come with the human condition. All things are practices but to help fullfil the nature so that no detriment comes to the chase towards Arete.
