Miriam Griffin [49]Miriam T. Griffin [10]
  1. Seneca: A Philosopher in Politics.Miriam T. Griffin - 1992 - Clarendon Press.
    For this Clarendon Paperback, Dr Griffin has written a new Postscript to bring the original book fully up to date. She discusses further important and controversial questions of fact or interpretation in the light of the scholarship of the intervening years and provides additional argument where necessary. The connection between Seneca's prose works and his career as a first-century Roman statesman is problematic. Although he writes in the first person, he tells us little of his external life or of the (...)

  2. Philosophia Togata.Jonathan Barnes & Miriam T. Griffin (eds.) - 1997 - Oxford University Press.
    The mutual interaction of philosophy and Roman political and cultural life has aroused more and more interest in recent years among students of classical literature, Roman history, and ancient philosophy. In this volume, which gathers together some of the papers originally delivered at a series of seminars in the University of Oxford, scholars from all three disciplines explore the role of Platonism and Aristotelianism in Roman intellectual, cultural, and political life from the second century BC to the third century AD.

    Claudius in Tacitus.Miriam Griffin - 1990 - Classical Quarterly 40 (02):482-.
    The utterances of Claudius were celebrated, or rather notorious. Suetonius, like Tacitus himself, points out that he could be eloquent but that, especially when he spoke impromptu or added unrehearsed remarks to a prepared speech, he revealed that he had no sense of what was appropriate to his dignity as Princeps, or to the time, place and audience. The biographer cruelly collected various examples of his subject's verbal ineptitude.

    Roman Reflections: Studies in Latin Philosophy Eds. By Gareth D. Williams and Katharina Volk.Miriam Griffin - 2016 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 54 (4):673-674.
    This volume of thirteen essays originated in a conference on Latin philosophy at Columbia University, organized by the editors in 2012. The guiding principle was to examine how writing philosophy in Latin gave a distinctive character to Roman philosophical thinking. The conference was interdisciplinary, involving philosophers and literary scholars, some interested in ancient history as well. In publishing the papers, the editors had in mind as a model Philosophia Togata I and II, the second volume of which is almost twenty (...)

    In the fourteenth letter to Lucilius, Seneca explains how to avoid physical danger and discomfort: the worst threats to the body come not from nature but from men in power; therefore safety lies in not giving offence. Ad philosophiam confugiendum est : the study of philosophy incurs neither envy nor contempt, provided that the philosopher pursues it peacefully and without ostentation.
