Describes Epicurus as a man of great virtue, and his followers as having
departed from his principles in their sensuality. 'According to some writers,
their tenets were, that "the world was made by a fortuitous concourse of atoms;
that there is no superintending Providence over human affairs; that the souls
of men die with their bodies; that consequently there are neither rewards nor
punishments after death; and that pleasure [...] is the supreme and only good"'
