Episode 159 of the Lucretius Today podcast is now available. This week we complete our review of Chapter 7 of “Epicurus and His Philosophy” and our discussion of “The Canon, Reason, and Nature.”


Welcome to Episode 159 of Lucretius Today. This is a podcast dedicated to the poet Lucretius, who wrote “On The Nature of Things,” the only complete presentation of Epicurean philosophy left to us from the ancient world. Each week we walk you through the Epicurean texts, and we discuss how Epicurean philosophy can apply to you today. If you find the Epicurean worldview attractive, we invite you to join us in the study of Epicurus at EpicureanFriends.com, where you will find a discussion thread for each of our podcast episodes and many other topics. We’re now in the process of a series of podcasts intended to provide a general overview of Epicurean philosophy based on the organizational structure employed by Norman DeWitt in his book “Epicurus and His Philosophy.”

This week we complete our discussion of Chapter Seven – The Canon, Reason, and Nature

The Dethronement of Reason
Nature as the Norm
Priority of Nature over Reason
