Toronto, ON M5S 2C7 Canada

Allison Piñeros Glasscock will give a presentation to the CPAMP Work-in-Progress seminar, titled: "Stoic Self-Sufficiency and Seneca on Benefaction" Abstract: In his treatise On Benefits, Seneca provides an analysis of benefaction according to which successful benefaction requires the mutual exchange of good intentions by benefactor and beneficiary.
