Epicurean Philosophy -- and Re-Introducing Myself

Hi all. 

I was a contributor many years back and am back to Om Times. Over the last couple of years, I wrote Tending the Epicurean Garden (Humanist Press, 2014), which has received reviews from The Humanist, Secular Buddhism and other sites.  I also published A Few Days in Athens with commentary and study guide, and both books translated into Spanish.

As for the content of my book, you can get acquainted with the Four Remedies, which are the more basic points of the ethical teaching, by reading a piece I wrote for Humanist Life. Epicureanism incorporates a science of happiness, and the main goal of the book was to dig up empirical research on happiness by dietitians, neuroscientists, social scientists and others, and to demonstrate how their work vindicates the teachings of Epicurus, who lived over 2,300 years ago.

A Few Days in Athens was written by feminist, abolitionist Frances Wright, who was a friend of Thomas Jefferson and converted him to Epicureanism. It's a didactic novel that explains many of the main points of Epicurean philosophy.
