Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0199243581, Hardcover)

Lucretius' theory of atomic motion is one of the most difficult and technical parts of De rerum natura, and, for that reason, has hitherto been neglected by commentators. This is the first commentary to take account of the remarkable discoveries and re-evaluations in the field of Hellenistic philosophy over the past thirty years, which have been stimulated by the publication of many more Epicurean fragments from Herculaneum.
