Society of Epicurus Facebook Page suddenly reached (well) over 1,000 likes after a Yoda meme was posted in celebration of Star Wars Day (“May the 4th Be With You!”), which included the adage “I am virtuous because my soul is at ease”, which is actually a quote from A Few Days in Athens.
There’s now a bookstore, which we will be updating frequently as new books become available that are written by Friends of Epicurus. It currently showcases mainly books by Hiram Crespo and Cassius Amicus, but also has links to other books on humanism and from academia.
The last book to be added was Epitome, a Spanish-language translation of Epicurean Writings with commentary and study guide by myself. It includes the Principal Doctrines, Vatican Sayings and the Epistles to Moeneceus, Pythocles and Herodotus, in addition to a summarized chronicle of the lives of the Scholarchs and great masters of the tradition up to Philodemus of Gadara, as well as the Spanish translation of nine reasonings based on the surviving fragments of the Herculaneum Scrolls. The book is available from Amazon, or directly from CreateSpace.
