The Epicurean philosophical system has enjoyed much recent scrutiny, but the question of its philosophical ancestry remains largely neglected. This book traces its origins in the fifth-century BC atomist Democritus, in his fourth-century followers such as Anaxarchus and Pyrrho, and in Epicurus' disagreements with his own Democritean teacher Nausiphanes. The result is not only a fascinating reconstruction of a lost tradition, but also an important contribution to the philosophical interpretation of Epicureanism, bearing especially on its ideal of tranquillity and on the relation of ethics to physics.

About the Author:

James Warren is Assistant Lecturer in Classics at the University of Cambridge and Fellow of Corpus Christi College.

Review:

"This is a piece of dense and detailed scholariship, painstakingly referenced and thoughtfully argued." Philosophy in Review

"This book will become a standard resource for historians of the period, providing an unsurpassed collection of material for studying the whole Democritean school, and in many cases providing definitive interpretations that will make further study unnecessary." Ethics

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Epicurean philosophical system has enjoyed much scrutiny, but the question of its philosophical ancestry remains largely neglected. It has often been thought that Epicurus owed only his physical theory of atomism to the fifth-century BC philosopher Democritus, but this 2002 study finds that there is much in his ethical thought which can be traced to Democritus. It also finds important influences on Epicurus in Democritus fourth-century followers such as Anaxarchus and Pyrrho, and in Epicurus disagreements with his own Democritean teacher Nausiphanes. The result is not only a fascinating reconstruction of a lost tradition, but also an important contribution to the philosophical interpretation of Epicureanism, bearing especially on its ideal of tranquillity and on the relation of ethics to physics.
