Tending the Epicurean Garden

Ukemi Audiobooks has published Epicurus of Samos – His Philosophy and Life: All the principal Classical texts Compiled and Introduced by Hiram Crespo (amazon link here)–basically an Epicurean Audio-Bible. The audiobook contains all the ancient sources by the founders and selected passages from Lucretius’ On the Nature of Things with introductions and commentaries by the founder of the Society of Epicurus, summaries of many of the scrolls by Philodemus of Gadara, and of passages from Oenoanda’s Wall, and chapters on the later legacy of Epicureanism which include secondary sources like Seneca and Cicero.

Hiram Crespo was featured in the Seize the Moment podcast and in the HTLAGL Video Series, where he discussed the Epicureanism chapter of the book How to Live a Good Life: A Guide to Choosing Your Personal Philosophy
