Explaining the error. About some recent lines of research
The present contribution aims to present and critically discuss some of the nine essays gathered in the collection Axiological Confusion and Its Causes («ΠΗΓΗ/FONS Revista de estudios sobre la civilización clásica y su recepción» 5, Special Issue, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Instituto de Estudios Clásicos “Lucio Anneo Séneca”, Madrid 2020), edited by E. Malaspina e J. Wildberger. The critical review pays particular attention to some controversial issues concerning Epicurean epistemology, such as the notions of ἐπιβολή and πρόληψις, whose understanding turns out to be fundamental in order to explain how both gnoseological and ethical error arises.
