Once in the Old West (western civ, that is), a federal marshall showed up and said, "There's a new sheriff in town."

"I don't believe that's possible," Parmenides said.

I felt the book The Swerve was 1/3 too long. After More/Erasmus the connection wasn't close enough, and I felt the author was fishing for a way to make Lucretius relatable to contemporary folks.

Lucretius is too busy licking Epicurus' ass to come up with anything original...

My "fancy" book club read some letter by Epicurus meant to summarize his teachings. Later we read what we could of Philodemus. Everyone liked Lucretius better.

Comment by The Original Cody on February 4, 2013 at 11:05pm

So I was reading some Epicurus today... I now remember why I generally stick to the poets and historical account.... and stay away from philosophy...

In return for saying nice things about stupidly expensive watches, he's flown as a passenger in…See More
