10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A total philosophy of life, death, religion, science, ethics, and culture promising liberation from the obstacles that stand in the way of our happiness, the teachings of Epicurus claimed many thousand committed followers all over the ancient Mediterranean world and deeply influenced later European thought. From the first years of its development, however, Epicureanism faced hostile opposition, and, as a result, much of our evidence for the content of this teaching is unhelpful and even misleading. The Epicurus Reader fills the need for a reliable selection and translation of the main surviving evidence, some of it never previously translated into English.Included here, with the exception of Lucretius De Rerum Natura, are the most important surviving ancient texts of a system of thought that even today remains a powerful living philosophy. The Epicurus Reader will be greatly welcomed by anybody who teaches Hellenistic Philosophy, or Epicureanism in particular, at any level. It offers a judicious and ample selection of texts, including the only extant writings by Epicurus. More importantly it provides a reliable, often admirably accurate translation of these sometimes difficult texts."--Publisher's description
The essential Epicurus : letters, principal doctrines, Vatican sayings, and fragments by Epicurus( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Epicureanism is commonly regarded as the refined satisfaction of physical desires. As a philosophy, however, it also denoted the striving after an independent state of mind and body, imperturbability, and reliance on sensory data as the true basis of knowledge. Epicurus (ca. 341-271 B.C.) founded one of the most famous and influential philosophical schools of antiquity. In these remains of his vast output of scientific and ethical writings, we can trace Epicurus' views on atomism, physical sensation, duty, morality, the soul, and the nature of the gods"--Back cover

Lettres et maximes by Epicurus( Book )

29 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"De l'œuvre d'Épicure, pourtant très abondante, ne restent que trois lettres et quelques maximes. Si les " pourceaux d'Épicure " s'adonnent sans limites au plaisir et si l'épicurisme est une morale du libertinage, la philosophie du maître n'en est pas moins un des systèmes fondateurs de notre pensée occidentale. Le matérialisme d'Épicure est tout entier tourné vers un bonheur sans détour - la Lettre sur le bonheur, la plus célèbre des trois lettres qui nous sont parvenues, en est la brillante illustration. Le bonheur chez Épicure passe par la connaissance de soi, connaissance du monde et des atomes qui le composent et, enfin, connaissance - et dédramatisation - de la crainte que nous inspirent la religion et la mort
Wege zum Glück : griechisch-lateinisch-deutsch by Epicurus( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Epikur, 341-270 v. Chr., ist einer der am häufigsten - oft auch absichtlich - missverstandenen Autoren der Antike. Im Zentrum seines Denkens steht die Frage: Worauf beruht die Glückseligkeit des Weisen? Epikur antwortet: Der Weise ordnet sein Leben nach Regeln, die ihn von Furcht - vor den Göttern ebenso wie vor dem Tod -, von Begierde und Schmerz befreien. Epikurs Lustbegriff führt also nicht, wie häufig behauptet wurde, zu Völlerei, Egoismus und Ausschweifung, sondern zu einem Zustand der Ruhe, die aus einer zurückgezogenen, naturgemäßen Lebensweise resultiert. Der Mensch soll sich an den Dingen erfreuen, die die Natur ihm schenkt, sich damit aber auch bescheiden: mit dem Freundeskreis, dem Becher Wein und einem Stück Brot. Epikurs Wirkung reicht über Cicero, Seneca, die späten Neuplatoniker bis zu den französischen Moralisten des 17. Jahrhunderts, ja bis zu Nietzsche und in die Gegenwart

Lettre à Ménécée by Epicurus( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in French and English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Épicure Lettre à Ménécée Le secret du bonheur ? C'est ce que promet Épicure dans la Lettre à Ménécée. N'ayons peur ni des dieux, ni de la mort, ni de la douleur ou de la mauvaise fortune. Recherchons le plaisir, parce qu'il est conforme à la nature. Mais pour ce faire, nous devons nous libérer des idées fausses que produisent en nous les préjugés, les opinions courantes ou les croyances superstitieuses. Il faut donc recourir à la raison et à l'exercice pour suivre la nature. Telle est précisément la tâche de la philosophie : elle définit la discipline rationnelle nécessaire au bonheur. La Lettre à Ménécée, texte fondateur de l'épicurisme, exercera une influence décisive dans l'Antiquité comme dans la pensée moderne et contemporaine : sur le poète romain Lucrèce - qui fait l'objet de notre dossier -, mais aussi sur tous ceux qui revendiquent une éthique réconciliant le plaisir et la raison.Dossier Lucrèce : L'indifférence divine et les ravages de la religionL'âme est mortelleLa mort et la peur qu'elle inspireDéclinaison des atomes et libertéLa sagesse et la satisfaction des désirs naturels
