L'arte di essere felici

Composto da Seneca nel 58 dopo Cristo, quando il filosofo aveva 54 anni, De Vita Beata, è un dialogo dedicato al fratello Gallione. Il tema così importante, ed esplorato anche da altri filosofi dell'epoca, è quello della felicità. Cos'è la felicità? Come si arriva ad essere felici? E la ricchezza quanto…

― Seneca

Seneca's Dialogues—as his epistolary essays have traditionally been known— capture the full range of the Roman thinker’s philosophical interests, in particular Stoicism and his unique interpretation of it.

Students of Stoicism will appreciate the further exploration of ideas touched on in Seneca’s Letters From A Stoic: Epistulae Morales AD Lucilium: the Dialogues illustrate the deeply intertwined cosmological and moral arguments of ancient Rome’s chief philosophical alternative to Epicureanism and Skepticism.

Seneca’s writings on subjects such as the shortness of life, anger, tranquillity of mind, and consolations for grief on the loss of a loved one, are strikingly applicable to our modern world.

The Complete Dialogues are collected here:

  • On the Shortness of Life (De Brevitate Vitae)
  • Of a Happy Life (De Vita Beata)
  • Of Providence (De Providentia)
  • On the Firmness of the Wise Man (De Constantia Sapientis)
  • Of Anger (De Ira)
  • Of Leisure (De Otio)
  • Of Peace of Mind (De Tranquillitate Animi)
  • Of Clemency (De Clementia)

Also included in this eBook: an original essay, ‘Seneca The Stoic’ and a Seneca image gallery.
