Η εισαγωγή των σπερμάτων στην οντολογία του Επίκουρου: Μια ερμηνευτική προσέγγιση

Αραβαντινού - Μπουρλογιάννη, Άννα

According to the classic Lucretius΄ interpretation of Epicurean seeds (Letter to Herodotus, 32) they are considered to be "semina certa" of all living beings, able to put a limit to the chance coming-to-be of anything from anything else. Yet this indeed ambiguus term "seeds" is used here in a very general, let΄s say, anaxagorean sense, as seeds of all things, that is as elementary entities capable to "reproduce" —in a clearly metaphorical sense— all composite things similar to them. Such a hypothesis leads to the conclusion that Epicurus in his ontology, apart from the use of the atoms, he also accepts the seeds as structural entities of the formally definite things.
