About this item

This study of ancient meteorology examines the meteorology developed by Epicurus and Lucretius in the first and second centuries BCE. It deals with issues of authorship, how they integrated multiple explanations of observations, and how they responded to critics. There is special focus on the relationships between important texts, including the Syriac Meteorology, the Physical Opinions, Epicurus’ Letter to Pythocles, Epicurus’ “Other Meteorology,” and Aëtius’ Placita.
