Back cover: The stoic philosophy professed by Seneca the Younger (c. 4 B.C. - A.D. 65) in his writings and later supported by Marcus Aurelius provided Rome with a passable bridge to Christianity. The correspondence between Seneca, who was Nero's mimister. and St. Paul is now known to be a forgery, but the letters in this volume (selected from Epistulae Morales ad Lucilium) advertise the humane and upright ideals admired by Stoics and extol the good way of life as seen from their standpoint.Philosophical in tone and written in the 'pointed' style of the Latin Silver Age, these 'essays' in disguise were plainly aimed by Seneca at posterity.

 

Condition: Good, pages are yellowed with age, else clean inside and solidly bound. Slight rubs to cover.
