Abstract: This paper intends to investigate the route required for the formation of adequate knowledge of death based on analysis of the philosophy of Epicurus. The central hypothesis is to demonstrate that the understanding of death can only be achieved through a continuous process of research into the nature of things, guided reflection within a system of thought, with radical impact on the conceptions of the universe, man, soul and world. The human mortality can only become clear to the man himself through philosophy. Epicurus developed his thinking so that when investigating the nature, man could understand the principles of the constitution of all things. This raises issues about the consequences of knowledge generation and corruption in human life, the most disturbing of them is death. The vain opinions are considered the causes of evils, the proper knowledge of death is one way of purging the disturbances that the souls of men, thereby promoting the wisdom philosophy combines knowledge to health. Strictly speaking advocate, confirmed the relevance of the connections mentioned above, the problem of knowledge of the nature of death is one of the privileged ways to demonstrate the coherence and unity of the philosophy of Epicurus
