Publisher Description

In this book, first published in 1890, one of the most prolific British writers on theology of the late 19th century offers a full account of the lives and thinking of "three great heathen philosophers": Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius, whom Farrar deems "the most clear-sighted moralists among ancient philosophers [and] with the single exception of Socrates, the best and holiest characters presented to us in the records of antiquity"; and Seneca, "because in him we can best study the inevitable signs which mark, even in the works of men of genius, a degraded people and a decaying literature.
