New Book and a Guide to Epicurus #202
This week on Daily Philosophy
Dear supporters and friends of Daily Philosophy,
this week I don’t have a long article for you, because I was busy getting the second book in the series on the Philosophies of Happiness ready and uploaded to Amazon.
But we do have something new and interesting to read: on the Daily Philosophy website, you will find a brand-new Study Guide to the Principal Doctrines of Epicurus. It contains all the comments from the reading group that just ended in a nicely edited form, together with the full text of the Principal Doctrines and questions for further discussion.
You can use this to organise your own reading or study groups, or even as part of a class on Epicureanism. The Study Guide links to other articles that explain the concepts mentioned in more depth. Find the whole thing for free here:
I will also offer the whole file as a PDF download in a few days, when I can get to it. If you find it useful or it inspires you to organise a reading group or class activity, do drop me a line and let me know!
And now back to the main topic of today.
I’m very happy to announce that book 2 of our series on the philosophies of happiness, Erich Fromm on How to Be Happy is finally out! It is available right now as a paperback and will be available as an ebook in a week from now (but you can already pre-order it): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B1JQ3K3L
Those of you who have a premium subscription already got a link to download the book for free. Thank you again for your support!
If you do not yet have a premium subscription, you can get one right here, and then you will also receive all the Daily Philosophy books for free the moment they become available. Click now and make sure you don’t miss any future books!
Daily Philosophy is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
If you did not get the free version, you can, of course, buy the book on Amazon.
The book contains all the articles from the Fromm section of the Daily Philosophy website in an edited and updated form.
I would be very grateful if you could leave a short review on Amazon. This takes only a few minutes. The review link (for the paperback version) is here:
You don’t need to buy the book in order to leave a review. If you are a subscriber here, you have already read the content when we talked about Fromm (in the Spring of 2021, a year ago), and you can still find the first version of those articles on the Daily Philosophy website.
Publishing these articles and managing the newsletter every week is a lot of work, and you would be really helping me a lot by leaving a review. Thanks!
Many thanks again for your support and best wishes,
