Publisher's summary

Seneca's Letters from a Stoic is considered one of the thought-leaders of philosophy in the history of classical literature. The compilation offers a comprehensive introduction to the stoic philosophy. Stoicism is Hellenistic philosophy that dominated literature and conversation until around Three AD. Its roots are traced back to ancient Greece at its founding by Zeno of Citium.

The practice teaches that moral virtue is the highest "good" and it is developed by knowledge. The "best" members of society are wise because they live in absolute harmony with Reason that governs the natural world and they are immune to "worldly" desires such as greed, pleasure, and pain. Seneca uses these principals to offer his own advice for living one's best life.

The Letters serve as a guide for maximizing the "good" and disregarding the "bad". A must-listen for any classical enthusiasts!
