CLASSICS 102L: Advanced Latin: Lucretius (De Rerum Natura)

In this course we will read Book 3 of one of the most compelling works of ancient philosophy: Lucretius' De Rerum Natura ("On the Nature of Things"). The poem is a detailed exposition of the physical theory of Epicurus, an extreme materialism (and precursor to modern atomic theory) intended in significant part to remove the fear of death. Book 3 is considered by many to be the finest of the entire poem, for Lucretius offers here a response to the fact of human mortality that is nothing short of ennobling and liberating. Classics majors and minors must take the course for a letter grade. It may be repeated for degree credit with advance approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
