Socrates, through his teachings and lectures, forced individuals to examine basic human values and ethics.

    The problems with Epicurus' statements are as follows. Evil is not defined. Therefore, the assessment of the statements cannot be validated. If evil were defined, what would justify the definition as being the right one? Epicurus presupposes a moral absolute that if God can prevent evil, then he should. Epicurus ( BCE) and his philosophy of Epicureanism, featuring e-texts, book lists, links, historical photos and more. Welcome! Epicurus of Sámos ( BCE), the Greek “garden philosopher,” was an ancient sage who left us an enduring message of optimism.

    Principal Doctrines By Epicurus Translated by Robert Drew Hicks. 1. A happy and eternal being has no trouble himself and brings no trouble upon any other being; hence he is exempt from movements of anger and partiality, for every such movement implies weakness 2. Epicurus and the Book of Ecclesiastes There are a few papers and books out there that remark on the similarities between Epicureanism and the philosophy to be found in the Book of Ecclesiastes. Epicurus not being particularly beloved by those religions which hold the bible holy this seems a strange idea.
