Lucretius on Atomic Motion

A Commentary on De Rerum Natura Book Two lines 1-332

the late Don Fowler
Prepared by P. G. Fowler

  • The first commentary to take account of the remarkable discoveries and re-evaluations in the field of Hellenistic philosophy over the past thirty years
  • Covers a discrete topic and self-contained section in unrivalled detail
  • Includes the Latin text
  • Book 2 of De rerum natura has, so far, failed to attract a separate commentary of its own, unlike the other five books: the commentary will be useful for anyone who wishes to study the whole oeuvre of Lucretius
  • Makes an exceptional contribution to the global history of the Latin poetic language
