Seneca’s Letters, a masterpiece of classical literature, offer a compelling and accessible introduction to Stoic ideas. Seneca uses these ideas to offer practical advice on a number of real-world problems, and his guidance remains as relevant today as at the time it was written. Whether you are a senior executive or an emerging artist, an athlete or a home-maker, the Letters give you the tools you need to overcome setbacks and maximize your potential. Lexicos Publishing is proud to present this authoritative English edition, originally published by Harvard University Press, which has been revised and updated, with a new introduction and an up-to-date guide to further reading.

“It doesn’t concern itself with complicated theories about the world, but with helping us overcome destructive emotions and act on what can be acted upon. Just like an entrepreneur, it’s built for action, not endless debate.” Ryan Holiday
