This is a video in my new Core Concepts series -- designed to provide students and lifelong learners a brief discussion focused on one main concept from a classic philosophical text and thinker.

This video focuses on Epicurus' works in moral philosophy, and examines his discussion of three types of desires: natural and necessary desires; natural but not necessary desires; and desires that are neither natural nor necessary, but based on "groundless opinion"
