Do you consider yourself an epicurean? Do you enjoy fine food and a pleasurable lifestyle? Being an epicurean is different to being an Epicurean, as in following the teachings of Epicurus.
The philosophy of Epicureanism is often misunderstood as a hedonistic worldview and I’ll admit to thinking that too when I first came across it. After reading The Fourfold Remedy: Epicurus and the Art of Happiness by John Sellars I was glad to be proven wrong.
A wonderful book on an introduction to Epicureanism, The Fourfold Remedy sets the record straight.
