Epicurus, our Hegemon, wrote 300 scrolls that are lost to us. The writings of the other three founders, the fragments of Philodemus, Diogenes of Oenoanda, and the works of other Friends are also forever gone. We’ll never how much richer our tradition would be if those sources had been preserved. But we can’t change that. What we CAN do, however, is write 300 times 300 new scrolls and revitalize our wholesome philosophy with new insights, with new discourse that is relevant to our age and to our lives.
SoFE’s Journal came together with the kind assistance of Sasha Euler and has been created as a compilation of contemporary Epicurean wisdom from all walks of life: thinkers, pupils, scholars, and everyday bloggers. It is a more organized, more professional and easier-to-cite format than the informal webpage style that we’ve had up until now.
Welcome to the new Society of Friends of Epicurus (SoFE) Journal.

Developments of Epicurean thought
Happy 20th!, the newsletter of the Society of Friends of Epicurus, was published from January 2014 through August 2015, but due to lack of time was discontinued. Anyone wanting weekly updates on what’s going on in the land of Epicurus should, however, follow Cassius’ This Week in Epicureanism updates, which are posted at Epicurus Central and in our Epicurean Philosophy facebook group.
