Titi Lucreti Cari De rerum natura libri sex (in 3 volumes). Greek-English. Edited with prolegomena, critical apparatus translation, and commentary by Cyril Bailey.
IX, 1785 S. Originalleinen mit Schutzumschlag. Umschläge mit minimalen Läsuren. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - His poem De rerum natura (usually translated as "On the Nature of Things" or "On the Nature of the Universe") transmits the ideas of Epicureanism, which includes Atomism and psychology. Lucretius was the first writer to introduce Roman readers to Epicurean philosophy. The poem, written in some 7,400 dactylic hexameters, is divided into six untitled books, and explores Epicurean physics through richly poetic language and metaphors. Lucretius presents the principles of atomism the nature of the mind and soul explanations of sensation and thought the development of the world and its phenomena and explains a variety of celestial and terrestrial phenomena. The universe described in the poem operates according to these physical principles, guided by fortuna, "chance", and not the divine intervention of the traditional Roman deities.
