In practical terms, I have found that the philosophy of Epicurius is very logical and humane. Epicurius was an ancient Greek philosopher. His philosophy stressed the avoidance of pain and suffering. He taught that a person should do everything in their power to eliminate, or at least reduce as much as possible, the suffering and pain that one faces in life. He stressed ataraxia, which - I guess - can be translated as "tranquility" or "lack of perturbance." Ataraxia is an ancient concept that goes back to the pre-Socratics. The ancient sceptics also held ataraxia as the most highest and most cherished of all ideals and goals. And I personally concur.
Of course, there are various paths to ataraxia. But I think that any ath would be acceptable as long as your search for ataraxia does not impede, or encroach upon, the ataraxia of others. If anti-depressants enhance your "psychic" [mental or spiritual] well-being, then I can think of no reason why you should not use them. Every person is entitled to - and should strive for - ataraxia.
Maybe you couldrad about the philosophy of Epicurius and his followers, the Epcureans. Personally, I have been reading the Roman stoic philosopher, Seneca. Curiously, I have found a combination of Epicurean and Stoic philosophy to be useful. I am currently reading Seneca's On The Shortness of Life.Basically, Seneca disagrees with Hippocrates who wrote - "Vita brevis, ars longa" [Life (is) short, art (is) long}. Seneca's point is that life is not short, if a person's uses correctly the time alloted to him/her.
