This morning I downloaded a copy of On Benefits
from Project Gutenberg, along with one I didn't see on your list, Apocolocyntosis
. It was the only Seneca they had, surprisingly. I'll get started on his On Benefits
and we can have a discussion.
Strangely enough, there seem to be more ressources in French for Seneca. I found "on the shortness of life" for free and several other books for 2-3 euros. But as I said, for this kind of writing I believe notes are really useful, and I don't think any of those cheap or free versions have them. But the free one includes the original Latin text. Not very useful for me though.
But tonight, rather than reading, I think I will watch another episode of The Origins of Christianity. I love that series
