Quote from Cassius
What we are trying to do ultimately is get a firm fix on what it was that Epicurus was rejecting, while still embracing "reason" in PD16!
All this discussion of details is irrelevant and worthless unless we keep that goal in mind.
But even more important is to understand what Epicurus was proposing! It would be great to have a presentation discussing that; I've found it quite a challenge sorting through Methods of Inference. I would find it extremely useful, and would be quite grateful, if someone with more knowledge of the subject than I have could put something together.
