Stoicism: Seneca and Boethius

Advanced Latin: Summer Reading (L310)

Stoicism is making a comeback. What is it all about? In this course you will be reading selections from the Roman philosopher Seneca’s Epistulae Morales and the Christian philosopher Boethius’s De Consolatione Philosophiae. While Seneca is a paragon of the Stoic tradition, Boethius on the other hand is rarely classed with the Stoics. His approach to Stoic themes, however, even from a Christian perspective, has the potential to illuminate Stoicism in a surprising and helpful light. Join us for a Stoic Summer and discuss these two great works of Latin literature with us – in Latin!

Nota bene: This is an advanced Latin course and it is conducted entirely in Latin.
