Essays 8: Of Leisure

5 1 5 Author: Seneca Narrator: Robin Homer
As audiobook.
Of Leisure only survives in a fragmentary state. The work concerns the rational use of spare time, whereby one can still actively aid human kind by engaging in wider questions about nature and the universe.
The text begins mid-sentence, and ends rather abruptly. In the Codex Ambrosianus (the main source for Seneca's essays) it is simply tacked onto the end of De Vita Beata suggesting a scribe missed a page or two.
The addressee has been erased but appears to have been seven letters long and is assumed to have been Seneca's friend Serenus.
