    Today we are expanding the subforum space devoted to Catherine Wilson's "Pleasure Principle" and "How To Be An Epicurean." The books were recently released and are being heavily promoted, and we need to have a place to discuss both the good points and the numerous bad points of these books. Please pay special attention to: Responding To Catherine Wilson's Chart Comparing Epicurus To The Stoics

    One of our regulars here, Charles E., is a frequent use of the "Discord" chat application, and he has set up a new user group for Epicurean discussion which you can find at the link below. If you are a frequent user of "Discord" please check it out. I have signed up myself, however I am spread pretty thin and I am not sure how often I will get there, but I am sure you will find your host there to be very friendly and knowledgeable:https://discord.gg/tXrUYne
