    Thank you for the warm welcome.

    I learned about Epicurus first in our philosophy class in school. However our philosophy teacher, although a wise man otherwise, was no friend of Epicurean philosophy and used to disprove him from the viewpoint of…

    Welcome C. Florius Lupus ! I like good Roman names! When you get a chance please tell us about your background and interest in Epicurus, and your mastery of Lucretius which no doubt you read in our mother tongue! :-)

    I bet you know what I will say to this part: "I generally agree with Epicurus with the exception of Epicurus' assumption that there is no…

    I have found the e-books of Cassius Amicus the most valuable resources for Epicurean philosophy in the Internet. So I am happy to be allowed to join this forum.

    Here are my thoughts about the aforementioned topics:

    No problem about delayed responses - my life interferes with my philosophy time too!

    However at times it's good to refocus in ways that just scrolling back over the thread doesn't fix.
