Summary

Despite its modern-day connotations of hedonism, "epicureanism" has more to do with living a mindful, uncomplicated life. These writings by the ancient Greek sage who founded the school of thought that bears his name advise maximizing simple pleasures and minimizing pain, such as the irrational fear of death. Epicurus' enduring wisdom stresses the search for sources of lasting satisfaction, such as friendship and philosophical inquiry.

Author Biography

Greek philosopher Epicurus (341–270 BC) founded a school in Athens that focused on the art of living. Although he was a prolific author, very few of his writings have survived, making this collection all the more precious.
