Recommended Reading

This list will be expanded, but there is one book I recommend more than any other: Norman DeWitt's "Epicurus and His Philosophy."

I have blogged about professor DeWitt at frequently.

Copies of "Epicurus And His Philosophy" can be found through Abebooks here.

A summary of Professor DeWitt's perspective on Epicurus can be found in his essay "Philosophy for The Millions."
