-===== Summary ​=====+===== Why We Are Here =====
  
 Epicurean philosophy is best known today for its ethics - the advocacy of “pleasure” rather than divine revelation or abstract logic - as the guide to life. Many of the most challenging and beneficial aspects of the philosophy, however, stem from its deeper world views on the nature of the universe and the proper basis of human knowledge. The purpose of this web site is to equip you with the background that will help you explore all of these fascinating aspects and apply them productively to your own life. Epicurean philosophy is best known today for its ethics - the advocacy of “pleasure” rather than divine revelation or abstract logic - as the guide to life.
