Stoicism: A Practical Guide to the Select Works of Seneca

Authored by M. James Ziccardi

Lucius Annaeus Seneca is widely regarded as one of the most influential and inspirational moral writers within the Stoic tradition, or what many regard as the noble philosophy of pre-Christian Rome. Although the origins of Stoicism predate the works of Seneca by several centuries, it is his writings (along with those of Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius) that have made the virtue-centric doctrines of Stoicism as relevant today as they were when they were first written.

In "Stoicism: A Practical Guide to the Select Works of Seneca", M. James Ziccardi presents in an easy to follow format the key passages and principal ideas that are put forward in six of Seneca's most important works: "On the Shortness of Life", "On Anger", "On the Happy Life", "On Peace of Mind", "On Benefits", and "On Clemency".

Portions of this book have been extracted from M. James Ziccardi's "Roman Stoicism: Words to Live (and Die) By".
