Description (podcaster-provided):

Lucretius Today is a podcast dedicated to learning Epicurean philosophy through study of the poet Lucretius, who lived in the age of Julius Caesar and wrote "On The Nature of Things," the only complete presentation of Epicurus' ideas left to us from the ancient world. We'll walk you line by line through the six books of Lucretius' poem, and we'll discuss how Epicurean philosophy can apply to you today. In this podcast we won't be talking about modern political issues. How you apply Epicurus in your own life is entirely up to you. Over at the Epicureanfriends.com web forum, we apply this approach by following a set of ground rules we call "Not Neo-Epicurean, But Epicurean." Epicurean philosophy is not a religion, it''s not Stoicism, it's not Humanism, it's not Libertarianism, it's not Atheism, and it's not Marxism or any other philosophy - it is unique in the history of Western Civilization, and as we explore Lucretius's poem you'll quickly see how that is the case. The home page of this podcast is LucretiusToday.com, and there you can find a free copy of the version of the poem from which we are reading, and links to where you can discuss the poem between episodes at Epicureanfriends.com.

The podcast focuses on Lucretius’ poem "On The Nature of Things," which is considered the most comprehensive presentation of Epicurus' ideas available from the ancient world.

The episodes cover various aspects of Epicurean philosophy in depth, ranging from detailed commentaries on the texts like the Letter to Herodotus, Letter to Pythocles, and Letter to Menoeceus, to more specific topics such as the nature of the gods, the pursuit of pleasure, and the rejection of pain. The podcast also delves into Cicero's critiques of Epicurean philosophy, providing a balanced examination by presenting arguments from both Epicurean sources and their critics.

In addition to text analysis, the podcast engages with modern interpretations and applications of Epicurean thought, including interviews with scholars and authors. This includes reviewing and discussing works like Norman DeWitt’s "Epicurus and His Philosophy," and other contemporary discussions on Epicureanism.
