Seneca's Moral Epistles is an excellent introduction to Seneca's moral and practical philosophy for intermediate and advanced students of Latin. This redesigned reprint of the 1985 Scholar's Press edition is an attractive, affordable, and user-friendly edition.

Seneca's Moral Epistles offers an intriguing selection in Latin of 40 letters of Seneca on philosophical and practical topics ranging from the lofty ('On Integrating Knowledge' and 'God Within You') to the nitty-gritty -- debauchery at resort baths ('Baiae and Vice') and the woes of over-training ('Against Strenuous Physical Exercise'). These letters provide a fascinating glimpse into the daily life of Rome in the Empire and one man's contemplation of it.

This edition includes:
* Introduction on Seneca's live and work, philosophy, style
* Chronologies: historical and of Seneca's extant works
* Selected bibliography
* Latin text of 40 Senecan letters with facing-page notes
* Vocabulary
