Mir Jalaleddin Kazazi's Persian rendition of 'On the Nature of Universe' penned by Roman poet Lucrèce was released by Moin Publications.
IBNA: Titus Lucretius Carus was a Roman poet and philosopher. His only known work is an epic philosophical poem laying out the beliefs of Epicureanism, De rerum natura, translated into English as On the Nature of Things or "On the Nature of the Universe".
Although little is known about the biography of Lucrèce, Kazazi's foreword offers a detailed biography of this Roman writer and even of his family.
The poem, written in some 7400 dactylic hexameters, is divided into six untitled books, and explores Epicurean physics through richly poetic language and metaphors. Lucretius presents the principles of atomism; the nature of the mind and soul; explanations of sensation and thought; the development of the world and its phenomena; and explains a variety of celestial and terrestrial phenomena. The universe described in the poem operates according to these physical principles, guided by fortuna, "chance," and not the divine intervention of the traditional Roman deities.
The Persian 'De la nature' is published by Moin Publicatinos in 300 pages and 1100 copies.
