Writings by Cassius Amicus

Cassius Amicus, the founder and webmaster of newepicurean.com, is a prolific writer of educational material on Epicureanism and one of the first people in modern Epicureanism to seriously take up the teaching mission of the Gardens.

It was, in part, thanks to his webpage, his moral support, and his directing me to Norman DeWitt’s article on Epicurean organizations, that I developed the resolve and the inspiration to engage in the work of the Society of Friends of Epicurus.

The following are links to his books and children’s poems, many of which he has made available for free or for very affordable prices.  Also, feel free to visit his webpage, newepicurean.com, where you will find a great amount of additional educational material.
