Epicurea by Epicurus( Book )

96 editions published between 1857 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hermann Karl Usener (1834-1905) published his monumental Epicurea in 1887. The volume is a collection of Epicurean texts and citations from a wide range of classical authors including Arrian, Cicero, Diodorus, Euripides, Plato and Seneca. The volume includes critical texts of Epicurus' most important letters: Letter to Menoeceus, Letter to Herodotus and Letter to Pythocles, preserved by the third-century compiler Diogenes Laertius. The letters give important summaries of Epicurus' philosophy. Usener's pioneering work represented the first attempt to deal critically with the manuscript traditions behind Epicurean texts. His reconstructions of the texts included in this volume are based on a thorough understanding of the trajectories of textual transmission. Each text is supported by a detailed critical apparatus, and another apparatus records manuscript glosses and scholia. This work provided for the first time accurate and reliable texts for the critical study of Epicureanism

The German scholar Hermann Usener (1834-1905) made an important contribution to nineteenth-century scholarship in the fields of philology and comparative religion. In order to recreate a picture of the religions of the Greco-Roman world he drew on elements from the fields of ethnology, phenomenology and hermeneutics. This four-volume collection of essays and reviews was published posthumously in 1912-1914. Volume 2 (1913) is devoted to Usener's works on Latin grammar and literature. It covers a variety of topics including rhyme in old Latin poetry, Latin historians, Cicero and Horace, as well as the abolition of the gladiator schools. Works reviewed by Usener in this volume include publications by such prolific contemporaries as Mommsen and Plasberg
