Wie ernst meinen es Senecas Epistulae morales mit dem Philosophieren? Vieles scheint aus systematischer Sicht inkonsequent und auf den bloßen Effekt hin angelegt.

Es zeigt sich, dass Seneca taktisch formuliert und seineÄußerungen bezogen auf die jeweilige psychologische goal interpretiert werden müssen.
