Selected Works

By Seneca (Author)

Seneca the Younger was a playwright, essayist, lecturer (and tutor to the emperor Nero) who remains one of the most important Stoic philosophers.

Emphasizing both theory and practical advice, Seneca’s writing is perfectly suited to contemporary readers. He articulated the difficulties of living ethically and influenced many writers, including Marcus Aurelius, Michel de Montaigne, Dante Alighieri, Tertullian, Baruch Spinoza, and Edmund Burke.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca (often known simply as Seneca, or Seneca the Younger; ca. 4 BC–65 AD) was a Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and, in one work, humorist of the Silver Age of Latin literature. He was a tutor and adviser to the emperor Nero. He was later forced to commit suicide for alleged complicity in the Pisonian conspiracy to assassinate Nero, the last of the Julio-Claudian emperors.
