This is the life and philosophy of Seneca.Seneca is regarded as a quintessential stoic and was known to have mastered the art of living independent of one's emotions as a guiding force. This detachment is evident in his philosophical treatises as well as in his personal life.Advocating that emotions are ultimately a part of and controlled using reason, he formulated his most famous treatise, On Anger, to devise an enduring system of self-governance.
