    Reorganized forums for reviews of Books, Articles, and Video-Multimedia -- Library - "Modern" Books and Articles

  • Cassius

    So that it is not necessary to hunt even as far as the wiki, I have added the core texts of Epicurus as submenu items under the main dropdown "Home" menu.

  • Cassius

    For those who might be working on an essay, blog post, or other project, and who would like to get feedback from other proponents of Epicurus, we've opened at subforum: Draft Articles For Review And Comment

  • Cassius

    If your text seems to be a troublesome color after pasting from a word processor, just select that text and press the paintbrush ("Font Color") icon and select "remove color." Quick and easy fix.

    Thanks to the regulars who drop by here everyday! Your interest and participation are what keep the site going!

    Updated FAQ Question/Answer on "Practical Advice For Implementing Epicurean Principles": https://www.epicureanfriends.com/wcf/index.php?faq/#entry-26

    I have adjusted the top menu so that the first item is "New!" Click that button and you get a scrollable list of all new content that you can check back to the last time you visited.

    Today I set up a new subforum for "Research Assistance" and started a thread on an old book by Digby that is available on the internet, but only through "partner access" through a university. I hope others will tgake the opportunity to ask for assistance in this subforum: Research Assistance

    I am switching the "Rostrum" back to visible by everyone so we can use it for global announcements. Unregistered and new users can see this box but cannot post here. Everyone who sees the "write message" box is welcome to post announcements and quick comments or questions here.

    The discussion of Imagery reminds me that we need to use what we have. I will add the full text of A Few Days in Athens and some Lucian dialogues to the respective forums.

  • Laughing Democritus

    Absolutely! Good to keep the energy up in here! :)

  • Cassius

    Thanks to Laughing Democritus for starting so many threads recently!
