Seneca: A Philosopher in Politics (Clarendon Paperbacks)

The relationship between Senecas prose works and his career as a first-century Roman statesman is problematic, for while he writes in the first person, he tells little of his external life or of the people and events that formed its setting. In this book, Miriam Griffin addresses the problem by first reconstructing Senecas career using only outside sources and his de Clementia and Apocolocyntosis. In the second part of the book she studies Senecas treatment of subjects of political significance, including his views on slavery, provincial policy, wealth, and suicide. Finding that on the whole, the word of the philosopher illuminates the work of the statesman, this book provides an important objective reconstruction of Senecas political career.
