Epicureanism is the seventh title in the University of California Press’s impressive Ancient Philosophies series. The series includes other titles such as Stoicism, Cynics, and Ancient Scepticism, among others. UC Press has developed healthy and useful classical studies and ancient philosophy catalogs. One of its titles, Introducing Greek Philosophy, though not part of the Ancient Philosophies series, was recently reviewed on this web site. The Ancient Philosophy series consists of introductory books designed specifically for students that attempt to offer “clear yet rigorous presentation of core ideas.” Epicureanism fits this description well.
