Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Live unnoticed: On the Vicissitudes of an Epicurean Doctrine contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, and list of abbreviations. This is a book on two words, which were offensive, scandalous, outrageous, and provocative. No doubt they were equally attractive, seductive, enticing, and fascinating. They were merely two common words, which were not even technical or abstruse ones, but they stood for a whole way of life, ridiculed and despised by many, praised and applauded by others. These two words were 'live unnoticed'. Many of Epicurus' predecessors eagerly participated in public life and most preferred a great reputation to an 'unnoticed life'.

Keywords: Epicurus' predecessors; unnoticed life
