Undergraduate seminar. Topic: Lucretius. Reading in Latin of selections from Lucretius's De Rerum Natura, his poetic exploration of Epicurean philosophy via atomic physics. We will approach this multifaceted work from many different perspectives, reading it as a philosophical text, a poetic experiment, and a guide to achieving tranquility of mind. We will read as much of the text as possible in Latin, and the remainder in Stallings' recent English translation, alongside secondary readings which will help us put this work in its literary and philosophical context.
