Epicurean ethics in Horace : the psychology of satire

Author: Sergio Yona
Publisher: Oxford, United Kingdom ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2018.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English : First editionView all editions and formats
Summary:
Horace's Satires owe debts of influence to a wide range of genres and authors, including, as this study demonstrates, the moral tradition of Epicureanism. Focusing on the philosopher Philodemus of Gadara, it argues that the central concerns of his work lie at the heart of the poet's criticisms of Roman society and its shortcomings.
