Impartial history represents habits of this Athenian philoso- and his followers as exceedingly al and temperate. ie members of his communal hool of "Epicureanism" were mostly or, but being greatly attached to One another, they, in times of scarcity, contributed to each other's support. Epicurus himself began his philosophi- cal career when he was thirteen ykars old.

His teachers referred him to philosphy and to philosophy he did apply. , He sought instruction from many masters, but none could give the youth any solid conviction.
