Welcome to Episode 209 of Lucretius Today. This is a podcast dedicated to the poet Lucretius, who wrote “On The Nature of Things,” the most 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.
This week will be a special episode in which we feature our “Foundations of Epicurean Philosophy,” a collection of excerpts based on the ancient Epicurean texts and rearranged in an order that covers the main aspects of Epicurean philosophy in one presentation.
As always we thank you for listening, and we invite you to join us on the EpicureanFriends forum to discuss this and all our podcast episodes.
And now we bring you “Foundations of Epicurean Philosophy.”
