Philodemus, On Anger Cover Image
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


This English translation of On Anger provides a newly edited Greek text of one of the most important Herculaneum papyri, the only collection of literary texts to survive the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 CE. On Anger is our sole evidence for the Epicurean view of what constitutes natural and praiseworthy anger, as distinguished from unnatural pleasure in vengeance and cruelty for their own sake, a view that can be shown to have influenced Latin authors such as Cicero, Horace, and Virgil.
