Episode 216 of the Lucretius Today Podcast is now available. Today we address an important but frequently questioned doctrine of Epicurus - Why did he seem to say that length of time does not contribute to pleasure?
EpicureanFriends.com was established in 2015 by a group of friends interested in the study of Classical Epicurean Philosophy, free from Platonism, Stoicism, Buddhism, Humanism, and other "isms" with which it is often combined today. We stress core aspects of the philosophy as key to gaining insight into proper understanding of the whole.
EpicureanFriends is not a membership organization with strict requirements that you agree with every aspect of Epicurean Philosophy, but we have community standards for those who sign up for an account and post here. Visitors are welcome to explore our site, but they should understand that due to terminology differences, seemingly simple Epicurean statements about "pleasure," "gods," "virtue," and even "good and evil" frequently mean something very different from what they may expect.
