Welcome to Epicurus Principal Doctrines Commentary Epicurus Principle Doctrines form a useful guide to his thought. They are not always easy to relate to the modern world. Following a discussion on the Epicurean mailing list EPL, this wiki was formed to allow collaborative contributions to a commentary on the Principle Doctrines.
Translation used is from Project Gutenberg, so it is out of copyright. It is the translation of Robert Drew Hicks:
The idea really is to increase our understanding of Epicurus. In particular, to explore how his thought can be applied, practically, in the modern world. Also, to provide a critique where there may be areas of difficulty.
The intention is to use this wiki to produce a book on the Principle Doctrines. Collaborative contributions can be difficult to publish if copyright is defaulted. Consequently, all contributors agree to relinquish all copyright claims to material they provide on this wiki by contributing. However, all contributors who register their names on this wiki will be acknowledged in the book if it is ever published. With this exception, this wiki follows the copyright notice at the bottom of this page - that is the contents are covered by the CC-BY-SA. ==
