On the Nature of Things

by Lucretius
Publisher: Penguin Classics
Trade Paperback, 336 pages
Current Retail Price: $16.00

The Roman philosopher's didactic poem in 6 parts, "De Rerum Natura" — "On the Nature of Things" —theorizes that natural causes are the forces behind earthly phenomena and dismisses divine intervention. Derived from the philosophical materialism of the Greeks, Lucretius' work remains the primary source for contemporary knowledge of Epicurean thought.
