  • Letters from a Stoic by Robin Campbell
    Letters from a Stoic (Multiple languages, Paperback) Seneca

    A philosophy that saw self-possession as the key to an existence lived "in accordance with nature", Stoicism called for restraint of animal instincts and severing of emotional ties. Seneca's contribution to a seemingly unsympathetic creed was to transform it into an inspiring declaration of the dignity of the individual mind.

  • Stoicism for Beginners by Seneca
    Stoicism for Beginners (English, Paperback) Seneca

    De brevitate vitae / Von der Kürze des Lebens (Multiple languages, Paperback) Seneca

    Auch vor 2000 Jahren klagten die Menschen schon über die Kürze des Lebens - nicht anders als heute.
