Overview

On the Nature of Things is the only surviving work of the Roman philosopher Lucretius, born in 99 BC. In On the Nature of Things, Lucretius sought to liberate his fellow Romans from their fear of the gods, and their fear of death.


Lucretius argued that the gods are not directly involved in life, and therefore there is no need to appease them; he also argued that death is the end of a human beings body and soul, and therefore there is no point in fearing it. An unforgettable amalgamation of insight, now in a new English translation.


On the Nature of Things deserves the highest recommendation especially for public and college library collections.
