c.4 BC - A.D. 65
Seneca was born in Cordoba, Spain, and practiced law and rhetoric in Rome. In his philosophic essays he taught the Stoic principle that virtue consisted in a will which is in agreement with nature.
Seneca became the tutor of Nero, the future emperor. For a few years Seneca was able to control his pupil but in A.D. 65 Nero forced him to commit suicide.
