Ancient philosophers contributed a great deal to the development of modern civilization.
The philosophy of ancient Greece remains relevant to us to this day. Notable thinkers: Socrates, Aristotle, Aristippus left an invaluable legacy.
One of the outstanding ideologists of that time Aristippus, a disciple of Socrates, was a genius of philosophy, a master of intellectual communication. He brought up followers in his own Cyrenaic school and became one of the first philosophers who made his doctrine business-related.
The knowledge of the ancient Greek thinker Aristippus, the founder of Hedonism, is valuable for the successful personality development. The wise teachings of the philosopher made up the Aristippus’ Code. The value of the Code is that the life experience and advices of the ancient Greek thinker help each person in the development process.

The Aristippus’ Code is an invaluable gift of the ancient philosopher to the modern civilization.
Awareness, knowledge, erudition, ability to accept the judgments of other people - all of it constitutes the breadth of knowledge.
This guideline is very important for the modern world, because quite often different people look at the same event or phenomenon from different perspectives. Sometimes it is difficult to reach an agreement. A person with a broad outlook seeks to understand other people. He adheres to his own opinion, yet at the same time recognizes the right of the interlocutor to have an different worldview. And if such a view of things or events has only one interpretation, one is ready to understand the point of view of another person. This valuable skill allows to constantly improve a knowledge base and expand horizons.
Desire and willingness to accept beliefs or behavior of other people that might differ from your own opinion.
Desire and willingness to consider unusual or different opinions and practices.
Tolerance towards different views of other people.
Let's take a simple example. John works at the company. He should convince Jane to place an order. However, Jane treats John with distrust and does not hurry with the purchase, finding hundreds of explanations for her refusal. The first option: John can get angry and refuse to cooperate with Jane. The second option: John can try to understand the client. To do this, he will find out what stops her from completing the purchase and what kind of doubts she has. According to the Aristippus’ Code, if John chooses the second type of behavior, looking from the Jane’s perspective, he will be able to convince her to complete the purchase.
Every day you communicate with clients. Each of them has its own characteristics and experience. Surely, if one of two people does not accept the opposite point of view, endlessly argues, criticizes and interrupts, then communication will be disrupted. Someone from the pair will inevitably step back and end the discussion.
A person who can accept a different point of view and understand the logic of the opponent will find a way out of a conflict. If people exchange opinions and listen to each other carefully, then the dialogue can be enjoyed by both parties. A personal contact certainly can be both productive and sincere.
Therefore, it is important to bear it in mind and adhere to the I guideline from the Aristippus’ Code:
Be able to accept different points of view and ideas.
