Lucretius:
The Nature of Things (Penguin Classics) - Paperback

2007, ISBN: 0140447962

ID: 22422681340

[EAN: 9780140447965], Gebraucht, guter Zustand, [PU: Penguin Classics], POETRY, CLASSIC LITERATURE, ATOMIC THEORY, PHILOSOPHY, EPICURUS, Some shelf wear on the edge of the pages and cover, but no major defects. Pages are unmarked. Lucretius' poem On the Nature of Things combines a scientific and philosophical treatise with some of the greatest poetry ever written. With intense moral fervour he demonstrates to humanity that in death there is nothing to fear since the soul is mortal, and the world and everything in it is governed by the mechanical laws of nature and not by gods; and that by believing this men can live in peace of mind and happiness. He bases this on the atomic theory expounded by the Greek philosopher Epicurus, and continues with an examination of sensation, sex, cosmology, meteorology, and geology, all of these subjects made more attractive by the poetry with which he illustrates them. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

ID: 5524663

The seminal Epicurean text, in a brilliant new translation The Epicureans of ancient Rome discarded the ideas of life after death and of an interventionist God in favor of the tactile pleasures of nature. In The Nature of Things, Lucretius celebrates with wit and sharp perception the extraordinary breadth of the Epicurean belief system, ranging from the indestructibility of atoms and the discovery of fire to the folly of romantic love and the phenomena of clouds and rainstorms. ancient and classical literature,ancient classical and medieval,caribbean and latin american,classics,education and reference,fiction,foreign language,foreign language dictionaries and thesauruses,foreign language fiction,foreign language learning Philosophy, Penguin Classics
