Description

Frances Wright was an author, a feminist, a humanist, a naturalist philosopher and--like her friend Thomas Jefferson--a disciple of Epicurus. In this didactic novel, she bears witness to the noble philosophy and materialist ethics of personal happiness that nurtured them both. A FEW DAYS IN ATHENS is a challenge to cultivate a mind without bias, to hold truth in high regard, to honor the innocence of others, and to love the wholesome virtues and human values within an entirely secular context. It is a rare pearl in the treasure of the intellectual legacy of the West.show more
