Letters from a Stoic - The Ancient Classic

Author(s): Seneca; Tom Butler-Bowdon (Series edited by); Donald Robertson


Throughout the centuries, Seneca has been admired as one of the greatest writers of antiquity. He has a way of expressing Stoic philosophy that makes it seem just as relevant to life today as it was two thousand years ago. Seneca taught that we should remain grounded in the present moment by being fully aware of the impermanence of life.

In being clear-sighted and dealing with adversity head-on, it's possible to live a life of meaning and contentment in the here and now, truly enjoying nature, art, friends and loved ones. The rise and rise in popularity of Stoic philosophy has made Seneca's letters bedside reading for many.

This collectible, hard-back edition of Letters from a Stoic includes an insightful introduction by series editor and self-help expert Tom Butler-Bowdon. Tom is an authority on classic self-help texts and connects the content of this book with the concerns of modern readers.
