Reproduction of a mosaic with the name “Séneca“. Roman philosopher, born in Cordoba in 4 B.C., he was a senator, and later tutor and advisor to the emperor Nero, who later condemned him to death, committing suicide in 65 A.D. He was one of the greatest representatives of Stoic philosophy, with works such as the dialogue On the brevity of life, or the Consolations.
Stoicism is presented as a set of very useful teachings for facing adversity and achieving inner serenity and joy, as well as great fortitude in difficult circumstances; they recommended self-knowledge, self-control and the development of what makes us human. Freedom, they said, depends on the extent to which we free ourselves from ignorance, fear and passions.
