about

This edition of Seneca's De otio and De brevitate vitae introduces undergraduates and more advanced students to Senecan philosophy. Both texts promote the benefits of living an inner existence insulated from everyday pressures. This edition emphasizes the relevance of the provocative Senecan message of a "balanced" life and his views on the complex relationship of the individual to society.

Editorial Reviews

"The volume would...make an attractive choice for study even at the undergraduate level, for the two dialogues offered here are among the most accessible of Seneca's shorter works."
-Margaret Graver, Department of Classics, Dartmouth College, Ancient Philosophy
