In 2013 I embraced the teaching mission of the Epicurean Gardens. What this means is that I've made a commitment to educate people about Epicurean philosophy and its science of happiness.

As part of this effort, I have been producing content since 2013 on the Society of Friends of Epicurus webpage, which I created and maintain, and also was commissioned to write the book Tending the Epicurean Garden by Humanist Press. The book is now available from amazon, and if you buy the e-book directly from HP you'll be allowed to post online comments which, when approved, become forever part of the work! The book is an interdisciplinary, modern introduction to Epicurean philosophy which draws from neuroscience, diet, and research by social scientists on the science of happiness, and shows how contemporary research vindicates Epicurean teachings.

As you can imagine this is all quite time-consuming, as it not only requires lots of writing, but also reading and interpreting didactic material, and sometimes the ability to access rare and hard-to-find books. Philosophers affiliated with the teaching mission at Society of Friends of Epicurus should be able to make a partial living from the teaching mission. I appreciate any and all support.

In recent years, I helped to create a Spanish-language free course in EP for La Escuela de las Indias and I now write a column for the most visited webpage and daily paper in Puerto Rico, El Nuevo Día. I've also written and made easily available commentaries on the scrolls that survived the Herculaneum eruption in the year 79 of Common Era, some of the translations of which were either unaffordable or very difficult to find by most English and Spanish speakers before I began my teaching mission.

I also create philosophy-friendly blogs for The Autarkist, my personal blog, and edit or write the content for the Spanish Sociedad de Epicuro site. For more didactic content about our tradition, you may visit Society of EpicurusNew Epicurean, or Elemental Epicureanism. Another way to support SoE is by sharing, liking, and commenting on the content. Thank you for your support!

This goal helps to sustain the SoFE webpage, and any surplus helps to remunerate for time spent reading, writing, and researching for content.
