Moralia by Plutarch

"Moralia" is a collection of essays and dialogues that delve into various ethical, religious, physical, political, and literary topics, reflecting the author's profound interest in the moral issues of his time. The work is not a single coherent piece but rather an eclectic compilation of thoughts and inquiries, ranging from the proper behavior at a banquet to discussions on the nature of virtue and the influence of superstition. Through these texts, the author explores the conduct of daily life and the philosophical underpinnings of human actions, often drawing on historical examples and the wisdom of Greek and Roman thinkers to illustrate his points. The collection serves as a rich source of insight into the intellectual climate of the early Imperial period and the enduring questions of human morality.
