Epicurus was born into an Athenian émigré family; his parents, Neocles and Chaerestrate. Professor Rist's short introduction to the philosophy of Epicurus combines scholarship with clear exposition.

All Greek in the text is translated, and discussion of more specialised problems of interpretation is relegated to appendices. In an account which mediates between the extremes of approval and opposition traditionally accorded to him, Epicurus emerges as an ideologist, a 5/5(1).

Essential Epicurus is a compilation of the leftover texts of the great Greek philosopher Epicurus. I had already taken a liking to Epicurus' teachings before I started reading this book, so I might be quite biased, but I still did find a whole lot of relevant knowledge in this book/5.

Leucippus, Democritus, and Atomism. by Jacob Bell on J By Jacob Bell, Associate Editor, Classical Wisdom the term “atom” actually comes from the Greek adjective atomos, Epicurus – Proto-Scientist, Secular-Saint, and Sophisticated Hedonist. That Epicurus and his followers were conscious of this weak spot we may infer from their eagerness, when occasion offered, to appeal to the univer- sality of sensations and beliefs, as, for instance, in support of the existence of matter * or the existence of divine beings.' But in reality the Gospel of sensation.

The Greek Philosophers by Rex Warner. Because of his close connection with Leucippus, Democritus is sometimes classed among the pre-Socratics, and in fact it is probable that he began "philosophizing" before Socrates heless he belongs to the age of Socrates and the sophists rather than to the age of pure "inquiry." He was a fellow-citizen of the great.

Atomism (from Greek ἄτομον, atomon, i.e. "uncuttable, indivisible") is a natural philosophy proposing that the physical world is composed of fundamental indivisible components known as atoms. References to the concept of atomism and its atoms appeared in both ancient Greek and ancient Indian philosophical traditions.

It is characteristic of the importance of Greek philosophy that, already in the foregoing exposition of the different aspects of atomism, several Greek philosophers had to be introduced. The Greek Atomists and Epicurus.

Richard Robinson & Cyril Bailey - - Philosophical Review 40 (1) [author unknown] - - Annalen Categories: Epicurus in Ancient Greek and Roman. Atomism (from Greek ἄτομον, atomon, i.e. "uncuttable, indivisible") is a natural philosophy that developed in several ancient traditions. References to the concept of atomism and its atoms appeared in both ancient Greek and ancient Indian philosophical traditions.

The ancient Greek atomists theorized that nature consists of two fundamental principles: atom and void. Diego Fusaro is a much-published young Italian scholar of Marx and Marxism, who has previously written about Epicurus (Fusaro, ) and numerous other themes.

His recent book, Marx, Epicurus, and the Origins of Historical Materialism, stresses the role of Epicurus for Marxian materialism against the background of Althusser’s aleatory. In this book, Tim O'Keefe reconstructs the theory of freedom of the ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus (–/0 BCE).

Epicurus' theory has attracted much interest, but our attempts to understand it have been hampered by reading it anachronistically as the discovery of the modern problem of free will and by: The two studies, “Indivisible Magnitudes,” and “Aristotle and Epicurus on Voluntary Action,” explain two doctrines in the philosophy of Epicurus, first by a detailed examination of the ancient Greek and Latin texts which describe them, and second by showing how earlier Greek philosophy gave rise to the problems Epicurus tackled.

Book Description: Elizabeth Asmis describes and analyzes the scientific method and physical theories of the Greek atomist philosopher Epicurus ( B.C.), proposing that Epicurus had a far more coherent and systematic approach to scientific inquiry than most classicists and historians of science have recognized.

An page scholarly overview is unlikely to be best for. Atomism was one of the theories the ancient Greek natural philosophers devised to explain the universe.

The atoms, from the Greek for "not cut" were indivisible. They had few innate properties (size, shape, order, and position) and could hit each other in the void.Atomism, any doctrine that explains complex phenomena in terms of aggregates of fixed particles or units.

This philosophy has found its most successful application in natural science: according to the atomistic view, the material universe is composed of minute particles, which are considered to be relatively simple and immutable and too small to be g: Epicurus.
