This is an abridged edition of the presentation "Against the Men of the Crowd." (Available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAobSn... ) The full presentation contains a thirty-minute section taken from Philodemus' "On Methods Of Inference." I urge you to listen to the full presentation first to get the full argument. If, as Philodemus indicates, you "do not have the stomach for" wading through the full Platonic/Stoic argument against the Epicurean method of thinking, or if you are simply familiar with the Platonic/Stoic argument and tired of wasting your time with it, you can refer to this abridged edition. This version retains the opening arguments taken from Lucretius and Epicurus which set out the basic positions, followed by the concluding selections taken from Seneca and Cicero which set out the importance of the issues. I hope you find this Abridged version useful. Just remember to be sure you understand the full argument as contained in the selections from Philodemus in the full, unabridged presentation.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAobSn...
