Anahtar Kelimeler:Politics in Epicurus, Ancient Thought, Hellenism, Epicurean Thought
Özet: Epicurus would like to investigate the man and his Nature against the thought of conventional Ancient World. It was an era of a transition which the cultures and places has converged each other and collapsing the Ancient thought. The searching of new world in Epicurean thought is based on the concepts like to be free from the pain and to reach the pleasure and friendship as an end. The aim was to protect and rethink the physical and mental situation of person in the disturbing process of new political era. In order to this aim he had imagined to make a new community based on friendship to reach the tranquility. The politics which he refused is the traditional way of Ancient thought and also established way of his era. In this context Epicurus give some clues to find an exit of today’s unstable and disturbing post-truth discussions in rethinking the individual, pleasure and friendship.
