Parution : F. Verde (ed.), Epicuro, Epistola a Pitocle

F. Verde (ed.), Epicuro, Epistola a Pitocle, In collaborazione con M. Tulli, D. De Sanctis, F. G. Masi, Academia Verlag, Baden-Baden 2022 (“Diotima. Studies in Greek Philology” Bd. 7).

This volume provides a new Greek text and a detailed historical-philosophical commentary on Epicurus’ Letter to Pythocles. The content of the letter concerns the study of the causes of celestial phenomena by means of the so-called method of multiple explanations, which is an original Epicurean novelty in ancient epistemologies. In addition to the substantial introduction and commentary by Francesco Verde, the book includes a foreword by Mauro Tulli, which sheds light on the structure of the letter, a critical-philological note, the Greek text, and the Italian translation by Dino De Sanctis, and an essay on the philosophical implications of the method of multiple explanations by Francesca G. Masi.
