Welcome to Epicureanfriends.com
, home for friendly discussion of the philosophy of Epicurus. Our goal is to host a warm group of people who are studying and learning about Epicurean philosophy as a way of life, not as a matter of history or for purely academic reasons.


Our main feature is our Forum. Primary activity takes place in the General Discussion section, but we also have forums dedicated to News and Announcements and the primary divisions of Epicurean philosophy: Physics (the nature of the universe), Canonics (the test of truth), and Ethics (how one should live). A full topic list is accessible at our List of Forums, or and new post from all locations can be found at the Recent Forum Posts page. If you prefer, simply scroll down below to see all our recent activity. Also be sure to check out our Gallery of Epicurean memes and Graphics, and our Filebase of helpful downloadable books and handouts.


News and commentary are typically posted under Topical Blogs, while reference material is found under Articles. We also have a Wiki and an Epicureandocs page with many Epicurean texts and helpful reference materials. You many also want to check out Society Of Epicurus, NewEpicurean, The Menoeceus Blog, or our many other Epicurean links. Currently many participants here are more active at the Facebook Epicurean Philosophy page, and you can click here for our List of Posts At the Epicurean Philosophy Facebook page.

    Vatican Saying 63 - the one you never hear Stoics talk about: "Frugality too has a limit, and the man who disregards it is like him who errs through excess."
