Editorial Reviews

Review

"O'Keefe is a helpful and masterful guide through the complex philosophical issues and fragmentary pieces of evidence relevant to Epicurus, determinism, and the swerve."
Mi-Kyoung Lee, Journal of the History of Moral Philosophy

Book Description

In this book, Tim O'Keefe reconstructs the philosopher Epicurus' (341 271/0 BCE) theory of freedom. Epicurus' theory has attracted much interest, but our attempts to understand it have been hampered by reading it anachronistically as the discovery of the modern problem of free will and determinism. O'Keefe argues that the sort of freedom which Epicurus wanted to preserve is significantly different from the 'free will' which philosophers debate today, and that in its emphasis on rational action it has much closer affinities with Aristotle's thought than with current preoccupations.

Format: Kindle Edition
Please fix the typographical errors in the Kindle Edition. It is infuriating to try to read them. I have downloaded multiple copies and they all contain the errors.
