Epicurea: Principal Doctrines

2009-01-01

I have completed the first draft of my translation of the Principal Doctrines of Epicurus. This translation is a work in progress, so feedback is welcome. One distinctive feature of my translation is that it's not only public domain (as all my works are) but also "open source": I spent many hours keying in the original Greek text, character-by-character with full diacritics, so that you have not only my English rendition but also the "source code" (which I have not otherwise been able to find online).

Oh, and next I'll translate what has come down to us as the "Vatican Sayings" (another collection of pithy quotes from Epicurus).
