Editorial Reviews

Review

" This excellent new translation (with an introduction and notes) of On Anger, On Mercy, On the Private Life, and On Favours will be extremely helpful to those interested in Stoic ethics and also to those whose interest is in ancient political thought, the Roman use of Greek ideas, or the thought of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century European writers like Clavin, Montaigne, and Lipsius, whom Seneca influenced." Ethics

"Cooper and Procopé in this volume have presented students with a very useful and valuable aide for the study of Stoic political philosophy." International Studies in Philosophy

Format: Paperback
This is a nice-sized, well-cut, book with bright pages and clear text. However, the font on the cover isn't as fuzzy in real life as it is on the image at the top of the Amazon "purchase page"--not to mention the fact that the blue jacket is startlingly vivid in real life. Overall, a relatively stunning yet simple book that goes well with jeans or dress-pants.

It arrived in good condition. The real color of the cover is a bit darker though.

Format: Paperback
My friends and I saw the play "ART" in Los Angeles, with Alan Alda and two other very fine actors. The book Seneca was mentioned. The play was about a man buying a white on white painting and the relationship thereafter with his two friends.
