Epicurus (341-270 BCE)
philosopher and founder of the school of Epicureanism, which focused on an
ethical, hedonistic way of life in the context of an atomistic, materialistic
universe. He had a type of survival
of the fittest doctrine which accounted for the evolution of species.
Although such a teaching avoided Aristotles appeal to final causes, it
still made room for the activities of Greek gods.
