SENECA the Younger

Born in southern Spain over 2,000 years ago and educated in Rome. His life took a dramatic turn in 41 AD when Claudius became the emperor, leading to his exile to Corsica. Despite turbulent times, Stoicism remained a constant in Seneca’s life, influenced by early teacher Attalus and admiration for Cato. Even after his death, Seneca’s wisdom continues to inspire notable figures throughout history and in modern times, making his book “Letters from a Stoic” a must-read for timeless philosophical advice on various aspects of life.
