    This is a collection of 65 of the 124 letters that Seneca wrote to his friend Lucilius during the last two years of his life. Despite being called "letters," these don't focus on what Seneca was doing or where he was traveling. Instead, these letters are little philosophical essays. Seneca would choose a topic, start by describing it in a rather mundane way, and smoothly expand it into a philosophical discussion. He relates the subject to Stoicism, often by way of Epicureanism. The translation i [...]

    This was my first collection of non-biblical epistles and I really loved reading it. It was so interesting to hear about the world of Seneca and Lucilius. For example, there was the very real threat that one could end up in prison or being executed without having done a whole lot wrong. The best part though was hearing his wisdom about every day kinds of things. For example, be careful of making yourself busy for busy's sake. It's like a really good self-help book, but better than that because i [...]

    It amazes me how the toughest frazes actually are the ones to bare the most human fragility.

    "When time is so scarce what madness it is to learn superfluous things!"I am listening to The Moral Epistles: 124 Letters to Lucilius, narrated by the amazing James Cameron Stewart.

    Seneca's teachings are pretty enlightening, although quite some parts are common wisdom. It is interesting to notice that this Stoic quotes Epicurus far more than anyone else, which tells me how powerful Epicurus' philosophy is. These two men more than 2000 years ago certainly knew better how to live than almost all people do today.

    These letters from a first century Roman offer a great deal of sound advice on any number of practical topics: find freedom in using one's time wisely, spend one's time reading the masterworks, the fundamental requirement of trust to have friendship, and that true poverty comes from always craving more. The two things I liked best: Seneca's insistence that the best ideas are common property. In other words, he would grab hold of truth wherever he could find it, something he illustrates by quotin [...]

    I have tremendous respect for the Stoics. Unlike Nietzsche, who also stared into the void of nonbeing, they did not flinch away into madness, but had the courage to pursue virtue. "Let us not fear wrongs, or wounds or bonds, or poverty. And what is death? It is either the end, or a process of change. I have no fear of ceasing to exist; it is the same as not having begun" (Epistle LXV).Seneca's relentless pursuit of virtue is surprisingly Christian. When he speaks of wisdom, he says, "The effect [...]

    These are the ramblings of a curmudgeonly old Senator who quit politics so he could spend his days sitting around his villa, outside ancient Naples, thinking about death. At one point, he opts to write a letter above a bathhouse, just for the opportunity to complain about how difficult it is to write above a bathhouse.In regards to Stoicism, though, he is arguably the most important thinker of his time (or any time before him). He brought structure to the school, which had all but completely giv [...]

    Profound letters and thoughts. Deep philosophical words in letters written 2000 years ago. I found it astonishing how relevant its lessons are in today's age. And how many of today's writings are just paraphrases of this wisdom from two millennium ago. After reading this volume I never felt stronger that "it is time to put the books down and begin living by their hint".

    Mina Soare
    An accessible anthology of bite-sized thought-cum-anecdote. I do like the Stoics; there is something essentially charming in attempting to seek virtue without justifications and excuses, while steadfastly criticizing the situation one finds themselves in.

    But I spend my time in the company of all the best; no matter in what lands they may have lived, or in what age, I let my thoughts fly to them.

    Read letters: 11,13,33 and 35.

    My favorite Author true to form.

    read most of this . . . in Bobonich's class

    Laughter, tears, and all that jazz. Thanks, Seneca, I love you.

    Classic stoic, pagan, view of moral virtue. Impressive on the surface, but empty without Christ


    you had me at hello

    These are the letters of Seneca, one of ancient Rome's wisest men. Though he's a student of the stern school of stoicism he's also the most relaxed of that group. None of the cerebral intellectualism of Epictetus here, nor the lofty cosmic vision of Marcus Aurelius. Just plain spoken, practical lessons about how to live the good life. These will be required reading for my son. They should be in the public school curriculum too.

    After reading Letters from a Stoic that includes a compilation of dozens of letters extracted from the whole lot, this Volume I seems a little bit tougher to read, many topics and many pages. Skipping some of them is maybe a good option.I would read first Letters from a Stoic, and then if you want to widen your Stoicism just give a try to these extended volumes.

    Not just the writings of a "Stoic", Seneca's writings are the invisible hands that the literary world has provided to help us push forward into the penultimate regions of living. An important piece of writing for all thinking men. Must read.

    Seneca is my new source of motivation for the new school year

    John Cairns
    It's better than I thought. I felt the stoicism, its pretence at freedom under adverse circumstances, was a response to living under an absolutist monarchy. They're all slaves really. Likewise his apprehension of death. There's a particularly good letter on suicide. He's arguing against fear of death but his basic grounds seem odd since it's we were non-existent before we were born and that didn't bother us too much, equating non-existence with death. He must've known that before is not equivale [...]

    Very rich thoughts exchanged with a dear friend. Seneca takes you on a walk of personal reflection. Agree or not, it's a stroll that enlightens and informed you about things past and things to come, things then and things now.

    Best book iv ever read.
