Epicurus of Samos (Greek: Ἐπίκουρος, Epikouros, "friend, ally"; 341 BCE – 270 BCE) was a classical Greek philosopher. He founded a major philosophical school in Greece which survived for close to 500 years. His thoughts on such topics as epistemology, materialism, rationalism and hedonism laid the foundation for much of western thought.
