Script Details

Epicurus, a Hellenistic philosopher active three centuries before the birth of Christ, withdrew from society with his followers to a garden beyond Athens. And there he taught the importance of living with nature, taming one’s desires, and cultivating a certain joy in pure existence. He was a hedonist of a rational kind, and he was the first green philosopher.

The poet Lucretius, for his part, diagnosed the human frailty that feeds the fires of rampant consumerism: “That thing we want and can’t get seems – of all things – the most desirable,” he wrote. “But once we have it, we must have something else.” These lines were penned at the apogee of Paganism. But they are perfectly relevant to the age of the plasma screen. As the late W.G Sebald observed in his meditative novel Rings of Saturn, ours is “a time when most people have constantly to be shopping in order to survive”
