Episode 173 of the Lucretius Today Podcast

Listen to “Episode 173 – "Epicurus And His Philosophy" Part 26 – Chapter 12 – The New Hedonism 02” on Spreaker.

Welcome to Episode 173 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 are 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 continue our discussion of Chapter 12, entitled “The New Hedonism.”
