This edition of Seneca's De otio and De brevitate vitae introduces undergraduates and more advanced students to Senecan philosophy. Both texts promote the benefits of living an inner existence insulated from everyday pressures. This edition emphasizes the relevance of the provocative Senecan message of a "balanced" life and his views on the complex relationship of the individual to society.

"...scholarly and comprehensive...will be useful (indeed, essential) for Senecan scholars and their graduate students." -Mark Morford, University of Virginia, The Classical Outlook "This excellent addition to the Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics fills a great void and is hence welcome indeed." -R. Scott Smith, University of New Hampshire, New England Classical Journal "The two works included in this volume are complementary and contain a great deal of interest to students of Roman culture and ancient philosophy." -Classical World "The volume would...make an attractive choice for study even at the undergraduate level, for the two dialogues offered here are among the most accessible of Seneca's shorter works." -Margaret Graver, Department of Classics, Dartmouth College, Ancient Philosophy
