Sobre a ira / Sobre a tranquilidade da alma - Diálogos by Seneca

By Seneca

Em nova tradução para o português, as obras latinas que deram origem à terapêutica retórica para o alcance da tranquilidade de espírito.

Escritos na metade do século I d.C., em formato epistolar, os dois diálogos contidos neste quantity foram provavelmente as únicas obras latinas dedicadas a expor uma terapêutica para a superação da ira e para o alcance de um estado de perene serenidade.

Ambos exemplificam a concepção que Sêneca - preceptor de Nero e um dos maiores filósofos da Antiguidade romana - tinha da filosofia: uma disciplina prática, destinada não só a elevar a qualidade ética da vida humana, mas sobretudo a promover um processo de ascese espiritual, conforme a perspectiva afirmada pela doutrina estoica.

Em função disso, a abordagem é minimamente teórica, sendo privilegiados os recursos de uma linguagem retórico-literária exuberante, que visa dispor o ouvinte ou leitor à transformação de seu estado de ânimo e à busca de uma conduta ethical permanentemente elevada. Leitura indispensável para a manutenção da serenidade em tempos conturbados.

Tonote that Jan was once now not continually part of our lives wouldn't evoke shock. despite the fact that, to visualize the Institute of Pbilosophy on Grodzka highway or Krakow pbilosophy with out him in it might be a tougher task-at least for us, Nonethe­ much less, we do keep in mind the times while he was once commuting to Krakow as a visitor lecturer.
