Peace and Safety to the Epicureans of today, no matter where you might be!
Today I would like to acknowledge my appreciation for the work of Stefan Streitferdt, who recently produced and released an excellent video explaining the basics of Epicureanism. If you haven’t viewed it, I hope you will, as it is well worth the time. Also note that Stefan has made available the printed version of his book From Pain to Pleasure: The Proven Pathway to Happiness which I also highly recommend.
Stefan’s work is a great example for all fans of Epicurus. There’s no better way to learn and understand Epicureanism for oneself than to internalize it so you can explain it to other people.
As Seneca recorded: Sic fac omnia tamquam spectet Epicurus! So do all things as though watching were Epicurus!
And as Philodemus wrote: “I will be faithful to Epicurus, according to whom it has been my choice to live.“
