Additional Essays on Seneca


Anna Lydia Motto

This book contains nine essays on Lucius Annaeus Seneca, distinguished Stoic Philosopher, creative writer, and Statesman of the Neronian Age. As author of epistles, treatises, dialogues, dramas, and epigrams, he produced a variety of works that enriched Rome’s literary achievement. Like the previous volumes – Essays on Seneca (Peter Lang, 1993) and Further Essays on Seneca (Peter Lang, 2001) – this book presents an in-depth analysis of the Cordoban Philosopher’s thoughts and portrays his erudition, humanitas, artistry, and deep psychological understanding of the frailties and strengths of human nature.
Contents: Essays dealing with Seneca’s thoughts on the emotions, love, envy, anger, the bestowal of benefits, the quest for the vita beata, old age, exercise and fitness, and evil.
