Epicurus.net and the Importance of Appreciating Our Available Literature

Those of you who are close followers of Epicurean literature and community online may have noticed that the epicurus.info and the Epicurus Wiki webpages both went offline recently. The other major resource that remains (outside of Society of Epicurus–including in Spanish–and New Epicurean with all its related sites) for content within our tradition is the excellent epicurus.net.

Epicurus.net contains the Principal Doctrines, Vatican Sayings, and all the main epistles of the founders, Diogenes Laertius’ biography and history of our founder and initial movement, and many other later works including the blissfully entertaining Alexander the Oracle Monger: a satiric historical narrative about a false prophet. It also contains other works.

If you enjoy and support our content, please visit, share–and, of course, save as backup–the content on epicurus.net, as well as in the rest of the philosophy sites available, to ensure that this content remains available online indefinitely through various means and outlets. You can also support our literary output by buying Epicurean books for your friends by myself, Cassius, or any other kindred spirit, by giving them away as gifts, etc.
