Letters From A Stoic

'It is philosophy that has the duty of protecting us ... without it no one can lead a life free of fear or worry' For several years of his turbulent life, in which he was dogged by ill health, exile and danger, Seneca was the guiding hand of the Roman Empire. This selection of Seneca's letters shows him upholding the ideals of Stoicism - the wisdom of the self-possessed person immune to life's setbacks - while valuing friendship and courage, and criticizing the harsh treatment of slaves and the cruelties in the gladiatorial arena. The humanity and wit revealed in Seneca's interpretation of Stoicism is a moving and inspiring declaration of the dignity of the individual mind. Selected and translated with an Introduction by Robin Campbell

Seneca S Letters From A Stoic


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

As chief advisor to the emperor Nero, Lucius Annaeus Seneca was most influential in ancient Rome as a power behind the throne. His lasting fame derives from his writings on Stoic ideology, in which philosophy is a practical form of self-improvement rather than a matter of argument or wordplay. Seneca's letters to a young friend advise action rather than reflection, addressing the issues that confront every generation: how to achieve a good life; how to avoid corruption and self-indulgence; and how to live without fear of death. Written in an intimate, conversational style, the letters reflect the traditional Stoic focus on living in accordance with nature and accepting the world on its own terms. The philosopher emphasizes the Roman values of courage, self-control, and rationality, yet he remains remarkably modern in his tolerant and cosmopolitan attitude. Rich in epigrammatic wit, Seneca's interpretation of Stoicism constitutes a timeless and inspiring declaration of the dignity of the individual mind.

Letters From A Stoic


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Description: Letters from a Stoic, also known as the The Epistulae Morales ad Lucilium (from Latin "Moral Letters to Lucilius"), is a collection of 124 letters wrote by the great Stoic philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca. Seneca was a prominent Roman philosopher and playwright who published several essential works about Stoicism. He is considered one of the three key Stoic philosophers (alongside Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus). One thing that stands out from Seneca is that he is one of the most enjoyable and readable of all ancient philosophers. The new Stoic Classics edition consists of two volumes. This is Volume I, which includes the Moral Letters to Lucilius from 1 to 80. A list of famous people who have embraced or admired the philosophy starts from presidents and ends with musicians. Thought leaders in Silicon Valley tout the benefits of Stoicism, and NFL management, coaches, and players alike - from teams such as the Patriots Letters from a Stoic are focused on the inner life, and the joy that comes from wisdom. It emphasizes the Stoic theme that virtue is the only true good and vice the only true evil. Seneca repeatedly refers to the brevity of life and the fleeting nature of time. Since 1614 the "Letters" have been translated into the English language many times. The present text is translated by Richard M. Gummere. He taught Latin at Haverford College and served as Headmaster of the William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia and Dean of Admissions at Harvard College. Also, this book is enhanced with hand-drawn illustrations by R. Bigfield to make the experience of reading these ancient texts more enjoyable and pleasant for a contemporary reader.
