  • On the Nature of Things: De rerum natura

    Titus Lucretius Carus was probably born in the early first century B.C., and died in the year 55. Little is known of his life, although two tantalizing bits of gossip were passed on by St. Jerome: that he was poisoned by a madness-inducing aphrodisiac given him by his wife, and that his great poem On the Nature of Things was posthumously edited by Cicero. For the latter assertion, writes Anthony Esolen in his introduction to the present volume, there is little evidence, and none whatsoever for the former.What does survive is a masterful poetic ...

  • On the Nature of Things

    Lucretius was born in 99 BC, and On the Nature of Things is his only surviving work. His aim was to free the Roman world from its two great terrors: the gods and death. Lucretius argues that the gods are not actively involved in life, so need not be appeased; and that death is the end of everything human - body and soul - and therefore should not be feared. But On the Nature of Things is also a poem of striking imagery, intimate natural observation and touching pathos. It is one of the most influential writings in Western thought....

  • Nature of Things

    The Nature of Things is the ancient Roman philosopher Lucretius's attempt to explain the nature of Epicurean philosophy to the everyday audience. Otherwise known by its Latin title, De rerum natura, this scientific work takes the form of a lengthy didactic poem. The Nature of Things is in many ways an early form of popular science - seeks to clarify and make readily understandable the principles of philosophy pioneered by Democritus and supported by Epicurus: Atomism - whereby two forms of reality are possible; nature and void. The poem is wi...
