On the nature of things = De rerum natura by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

1,921 editions published between 1486 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 11,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once we understand this, we free ourselves of superstitious fears, becoming as human and as godlike as we can be. The poem, then, is about the universe and how human beings ought to live in it. Epicurean physics and morality converge

De rerum natura = The poem on nature by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

399 editions published between 1473 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 3,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The De Rurum Natura of Lucretius (99BC-55BC) is one of the great books of the world, a lucid explanation of physical phenomena that develops into a majestic vision of the ultimate nature of the universe." "Lucretius' observations of the particularities of the world remain alive across the centuries. We follow his enquiring, scientific mind as he investigates the workings of mirror images, thunderstorms and magnetism, how we walk and what sleep is. Overarching all is Lucretius' belief in a universe of eternally recurring elements."--Back cover

On the nature of things by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

138 editions published between 1851 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 2,238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This great poem stands with Virgil's Aeneid as one of the vital and enduring achievements of Latin literature ... Based on the tenets of Epicurean philosophy, On the Nature of Things asserts that matter is composed of an infinite number of small particles; that even the soul, like the body, is made up of these atoms and dissolves painlessly after death; that there is no afterlife and therefore no cause for fear; and that the universe operates without the aid or attention of gods."--Page 4 of cover
De rerum natura by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

76 editions published between 1924 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the only known work by the Roman poet and philosopher Titus Lucretius Carus (about 99 B.C. - about 55 B.C.). It expounds the tenets of Epicureanism, a philosophy which believe "pleasure" was best obtained by living modestly, seeking and gaining knowledge about the world, and limiting one's desires
De rerum natura by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

69 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third book of Lucretius' great poem on the workings of the universe is devoted entirely to expounding the implications of Epicurus' dictum that death does not matter, 'is nothing to us'. The soul is not immortal: it no more exists after the dissolution of the body than it had done before its birth. Only if this fact is accepted can men rid themselves of irrational fears and achieve the state of ataraxia, freedom from mental disturbance, on which the Epicurean definition of pleasure was based. To present this case Lucretius deploys the full range of poetic and rhetorical registers, soberly prohibitive, artfully decorative or passionately emotive as best suits his argument, reinforcing it with vivid and compelling imagery. This new edition has been completely revised, with a considerably enlarged Commentary and a new supplementary introduction taking account of the great amount of new scholarship of the last forty years

De rerum natura (The Way Things Are) is a 1st century BC didactic poem by the Roman poet and philosopher Lucretius with the goal of explaining Epicurean philosophy to a Roman audience. Lucretius presents the principles of atomism; the nature of the mind and soul; explanations of sensation and thought; the development of the world and its phenomena; and explains a variety of celestial and terrestrial phenomena. The universe described in the poem operates according to these physical principles, guided by fortuna, ""chance, "" and not the divine intervention of the traditional Ro
