Golden Age lost and philosophy's brave new world: ontology in Seneca's Epistulae 33, 90, 86 and 84

This thesis investigates the nature of Senecan ontology by looking closely at metaphorical language, quotation and intertextual engagements in Seneca's Epistulae 33, 90, 86 and 84. Senecan ontology is deeply embedded in language and articulated through metaphor, narrative and intertextual engagement with both literary and philosophical traditions. An important aspect of this investigation is developing an improved view of Senecan hermeneutics, in particular how Seneca reads and how Seneca’s readers might read him
