Letters from a Stoic By Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Letters from a Stoic By Lucius Annaeus Seneca free PDF book download from here. “Letters from a Stoic”, also known as “Epistulae Morales ad Lucilium”, is a compilation of 124 letters penned by the Roman philosopher Seneca the Younger. These letters were composed during his retirement, following a decade of service under Emperor Nero.

The letters serve as a philosophical journal or guidebook of philosophical reflections. They often commence with daily life observations and delve into numerous traditional Stoic philosophy themes such as the disregard of death, the significance of friendship, and virtue as the ultimate good. Seneca advocates the principles of Stoicism – the wisdom of the self-controlled individual impervious to life’s adversities – while appreciating friendship and courage, and condemning the brutal treatment of slaves and the atrocities in the gladiatorial arena.
