The Cosmic Viewpoint

A Study of Seneca's 'Natural Questions'

Gareth D. Williams

  • Offers the first detailed, systematic treatment of all eight books of the 'Natural Questions' in English
  • Provides novel readings, with detailed interpretation of Seneca's Latin, of many passages within the 'Natural Questions'
  • Argues for a new emphasis on the essential artfulness of the 'Natural Questions,' and of Seneca's promotion of a highly original form of physico-moral discourse in this work
