Podrobný popis:

Publikace: Dialogues and Essays (Oxford World´s Classics) - Seneca. The fullest translation of Seneca's treatises (dialogues and

essays) in print, showing the range of Seneca's philosophical

interests in its most accessible form. John Davie's translations

are modern and readable and reflect Seneca's desire to make Stoic

teaching accessible and comprehensible. Tobias Reinhardt's

introduction is wide ranging and as well as covering Seneca's

career, literary style, and influence,includes a masterly summary

of Stoic philosophy and Seneca's interpretation of it. His notes

are the fullest of any comparable edition. Seneca's philosophical

writings on subjects such as the shortness of life, anger,

tranquillity of mind, and consolations for grief on the loss of a

loved one, are strikingly applicable to our modern world. 'No man

is crushed by misfortune unless he has first been deceived by

prosperity.' In these dialogues and essays the Stoic philosopher

Seneca outlines his thoughts on how to live in a troubled world.

Tutor to the young emperor Nero, Seneca wrote exercises in

practical philosophy that draw upon contemporary Roman life and

illuminate the intellectual concerns of the day. They also have

much to say to the modern reader, as Seneca ranges widely across

subjects such as the shortness of life, tranquillity of mind,

anger, mercy, happiness, and grief at the loss of a loved one.

Seneca's accessible, aphoristic style makes his writing especially

attractive as an introduction to Stoic philosophy, and belies its

reputation for austerity and dogmatism. This edition combines a

clear and modern translation with an introduction to Seneca's life

and philosophical interests, and helpful notes. ABOUT THE SERIES:
