Looks like the fire has been kindled
Scorpion bowls? Surprised he can actually remember having those. Must have had only one.
I think mr bell wants his ashes in space. Just like Scotty I believe.
Being food for animals is my wish as well. I think either suicide in the forest or dumped in the ocean might get around the legalities.
Even plants are sentient.
He had his detractors for sure. Still compared to Aristotle very little of what has written or taught by Epicurus survived. A few of his lettered and some of his sayings. And of course lucretius’s masterpiece and commentaries by Diogenes Laertius and Cicero. Compare what is known of Aristotle with what is known of Epicurus and it might explain some of the perceived bias even before taking into account the early Christians antipathy.
For better or for worse there is simply more of Aristotle to study than Epicurus. Perhaps a sign that the former found more favor at the time so more books by him were around to be found later, but it might also just have been blind chance as to what survived.
Yeah I guess a period there would be desired. Many of his conclusions were inaccurate. Most science discoveries would eventually happen but that does not mean those who were first or best known for the initial discernment should not get some of the credit. Giving accurate credit for the discoveries in ancient times is obviously limited but what writings actually survived
I have to disagree Aristotle was wrong in many of his conclusions. But he was correct in many of his methods he used logic and experimental evidence to explore the natural world. He developed what is now called the scientific method. He did not have the same instruments to measure and observe but his instinct about how to discover truth was sound.
