"The De Rurum Natura of Lucretius (99BC-55BC) is one of the great books of the world, a lucid explanation of physical phenomena that develops into a majestic vision of the ultimate nature of the universe." "Lucretius' observations of the particularities of the world remain alive across the centuries. We follow his enquiring, scientific mind as he investigates the workings of mirror images, thunderstorms and magnetism, how we walk and what sleep is. Overarching all is Lucretius' belief in a universe of eternally recurring elements."--Back cover
