HOW TO BE AN EPICUREAN The Ancient Art of Living Well

by | Read by Ana Clements

Philosophy & Religion • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Ana Clements lends a straightforward tone to this discussion of Epicureanism and how it can improve our lives. Author Catherine Wilson provides a detailed examination of this philosophy, developed by Epicurus, a Greek from the third century BCE. Clements's narration illuminates Wilson's explanation of how Epicureanism encourages living a meaningful life that is respectful of ourselves and our community. She also examines how the philosophy can provide strategies to tackle contemporary problems such as wide economic disparity, anxiety and sociopolitical strife. Although the clarity of Clements's delivery is excellent, her tone can come across as severe, especially during in-depth discussion. Overall, this is a sometimes-dry delivery of practical and philosophical ideas. M.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
