What are the strengths and weaknesses?

In this class we covered four (4) major philosophies of life. While the terms/names of the philosophies may not be familiar to most everyday people, the philosophical approaches to life certainly exist today. 1. Stoicism asserts that the universe is planned and designed and that human life is determined. Do you agree with this or not? How much of our lives are free and how much is determined? 2. Existentialism asserts that humans are essentially free, at least, free enough to make something of ourselves. What do you think about this? 3. Hedonism asserts that as human beings we make all of our decisions to avoid pain and maximize pleasure. Do you think making decisions in life on the basis of a rational approach to pleasure is feasible? What are the strengths and weaknesses? 4. Buddhism asserts the primary issue in life is suffering. What do you think about this? Do you agree or disagree? Also, why do you think there is suffering in the world?
