Who Was Lucretius? with Thomas Nail
Play • 1 hr 13 min

Thomas Nail joins the cast to give us an overview of the work of the ancient philosopher Lucretius, who is known for his generally atheistic ontology and his theory of the clinamen or "the swerve". The discussion covers the interest of 20th century philosophers in Lucretius theories, as well as the related political implications which issued forth. 

Thomas is the author of many books that may be of interest to Acid Horizon listeners:
