Epicurean Philosophy Discussion Zoom - Wednesday 8 PM ET - Studying the Vatican Sayings

Join us as we study the Vatican Sayings - Fall of 2023 - Every Wednesday night 8pm ET running for about an hour - open to LEVEL 03 forum members. Each meeting we will take one or more of the Vatican Sayings and discuss the meaning and practical application to living the philosophy of Epicurus.


This discussion group is an open group, for LEVEL 03 memberes, so you can drop in on any week, but of course we hope you will join us on a weekly basis, as this is sure to provide new insights into the philosophy of Epicurus. If you have previously attended a Wednesday night Zoom, then you can simply join in with the same link as previous Wednesday night meetings.


For LEVEL 03 forum members who haven't yet attended a Wednesday night meeting, please go here to let us know if you are interested in attending by posting in this thread (or send a private message to Kalosyni) and we will get the Zoom link to you by private message.


We will be going through these rather quickly and may be skipping some, and so will announce before each meeting which ones we will focus on. You can find updates about each meeting's focus over on this forum thread.

  • Philebus


    Soc. "O my beautiful Philebus, the goddess, methinks, seeing the universal wantonness and wickedness of all things, and that there was in them no limit to pleasures and self-indulgence, devised the limit of law and order, whereby, as you say, Philebus, she torments, or as I maintain, delivers the soul."
