Seneca - Selected Philosophical Letters
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Seneca's 20-book collection of letters addressed to Lucilius is a valuable source for our knowledge about ancient Stoicism. Highly influential in later centuries, these works also raise philosophical questions which remain important today. Inwood's selection of 17 letters provides fresh translations and a detailed commentary which explains the historical background and philosophical controversies to which Seneca responds, as well as guiding the reader through his methods of argument and exploring the letters' literary qualities.
