EPICUREANISM After Aristotle’s death, philosophy moved in a new direction. A lot of groups helped this new direction to form new ones and one of them is Epicureanism, and it was Epicurus of Samos who founded this philosophy. This philosophy was greatly influenced by Democritus’ atomic theory of nature. Epicurus was a practical philosopher who considered philosophy as the medicine of the soul. His philosophy was based on atomistic materialism that emphasizes the human life’s pleasure.
