Seneca’s text on the eschatological view is not without sanction. His writings, as well as Regenbogen’s final point, provide compelling evidence for apocalyptic premonitions. Seneca’s work has comparable visions where some are spectacularly destructive, and others are ambiguous. In his work, his most influential text talks about how great it is to be swept away along with the universe (Arnold, Edward Vernonn.p).
It is believed that against human history, nature will finally yield its last to human endeavor in an apparent promise to the new world. Seneca states that it will come to an age where the ocean will relax the boundaries of things where the Tethys shall uncover new world and Thule will not be the last of lands (Braden Gordon n.p). Behind apocalyptic pressure of Seneca’s work, we sense the torment of Neronian Rome. The Roman conquest was the destiny of Mediterranean world extended embedded mind of the Romans. Therefore, the increase of Augustus crown and satisfies that success was a piece of Augustus claim precisely constructed folklore that the promotion of Augustus crown and fills that triumph was a piece of Augustus possess deliberately fabricated folklore .
Seneca echoes in virtually in everything he writes. He says there will come a time where Assaracus will crush Pythia and the famous Mycenae into submission where it will rule over conquered Argos. He also states that harsh time will soften at the end of the war. As such, this makes the Latin literature to announce the promise as a false one (Arnold Edward Vernon n.p).
Imperial biographies are the black comedy of imperial of the classical conditions. Therefore, one can learn not to give so much weight to such goings since Mommsen. We now realize that the Tacitean tradition is a kind of a unique pleading history written from the perspective of a disenfranchised but still ambitious upper class.
Achille’s touchiness is prophetic of many tension of Greek culture whose hopeful vision is of a deep continuity between the general good and the striving for personal glory. The desire for such recognition fuels the whole range of Greek’s public life (Arnold Edward Vernon n.p). Greek is concerned with being better rather than being good. It is essentially interested with external reality and arbitrary in its goals. In Greek culture, the place occupied by athletic games was taken to Rome by gladiatorial shows.
Augustine is suggesting that imperial disorder is in a significant part of the derangement of the traditional competitive ethos with nowhere to go. It was Seneca who was charged with Agrippina’s murder. Seneca’s political writing at their most revealing is more or fewer words of the imperial thymus. External pressure plays a role on Seneca’s uninformative about a current event. Most of the emperors are seen controlling most the ancient worlds (Braden Gordon n.p).
In human affairs, we find ways of describing the wise man. We can learn that some things are under our control while others are not. As such, this raises the question about value based on this criterion. The stoic formula goes hand in hand with wisdom. It shifts back into something like its older intonation (Braden Gordon n.p). Throughout stoicism, the operating values are time and again, power and control. All the same, this explains why we restrict our desires less because they are wrong in themselves than to create a zone with no contradiction. Just like Seneca, Ariston favored trimming stoicism of its logic and physics to focus on its ethics. Notably, stoicism persists despite having persistent strain referred as theatricality. All the same, this does not seize on that comparison.
