Great New Books in the Humanities: Lucretius and Modernity

Date: February 25, 2016

Lucretius’s long shadow falls across the disciplines of literary history and criticism, philosophy, religious studies, classics, political philosophy, and the history of science, but despite the poem’s newfound influence and visibility, very little cross-disciplinary conversation has taken place. This event will celebrate the release of a new edited collection, Lucretius and Modernity, which brings together essays by distinguished scholars.
