Michael Aristidou The Epicurean Position on Mathematics

In this small book, I provide a comprehensive summary of the discussion on the Epicurean critique of mathematics and in particular of Euclid’s geometry. I examine the methodological critique of the Epicureans on mathematics and I assess whether a “mathematical atomism” was proposed, and carefully consider its implications.
