Abstract

J. Fich, editor of Oxford’s lectures on Seneca (2008), highlights what Catharine Edwards says about the utility of a comparison between Thomas More and Seneca. The purpose of this study is an introduction to this comparison, in an attempt to prove that the Edwards intuition is fully founded and worthy of more accurate studies.
