Epicurean Philosophers

John Gaskin

Epicureanism theorizes an infinite universe of moving particles, with no divine purpose and no life after death. Happiness depends on simple needs satisfied to provide tranquility of mind. This volume presents a comprehensive collection of the surviving works and wise sayings of Epicurus together with the great systematic account of Epicurean natural science in Lucretius's ON THE NATURE OF THE UNIVERSE.
