The homogeneity of the Epicurean Garden and the unchangeability of the texts of Epicurus has traditionally been interpreted as a form of orthodoxy towards the authority of the master and his authoritative texts. In this volume, an unprecedented combination of general approaches and case studies on specific individuals, texts, and phenomena will discuss the topic from different perspectives.
