Le matérialisme d'Épicure est tout entier tourné vers un bonheur sans détour - la Lettre sur le bonheur, la plus célèbre des trois lettres qui nous sont parvenues, en est la brillante illustration. Le bonheur chez Épicure passe par la connaissance de soi, connaissance du monde et des atomes qui le composent et, enfin, connaissance - et dédramatisation - de la crainte que nous inspirent la religion et la mort
