dc.description.abstract Epicurean philosophy of the Garden is a special case of the philosophy of solitude, a fact which is usually not mentioned at all. Philosophy of the Garden is, indeed, the philosophy of solitude. In other words, the philosophy of the Garden is solitude – understood in a simplest and unambiguously positive way. It is a solitude understood as isolation, resigning form contact with others to spend time with oneself. Epicurean solitude means apatridism (statelessness) and self-reliance.
