Episode Ninety-Five - Understanding The Paradoxical "Absence of Pain"

  • Anonymous comment from a Facebook reader on Episode 95:


    "About the latest podcast. As a beginning student of Epicureanism, I found Elaine's summary of pleasure and pain very useful in order not to end up in rabbit holes. I reread it regularly to keep seeing the main lines. You could also put a kind of warning on the texts on the website how reliable they are (Philodemus) by whom they were written and for what purpose (Cicero) and how they can best be interpreted. New people are warned then about the rabbit holes."
