Description
1597 Plutarch Moralia Greek Philosophy Essays Oracles Superstition French Amyot

‘Moralia’ is one of only two surviving works of Greek philosopher Plutarch. While not as widely known or recognized as ‘Parallel Lives,’ ‘Moralia’ is still a rather important work. It is a collection of seventy-eight various essays and transcribed speeches each of which provide an understanding of Roman and Greek life in the 1st-century AD. These essays have been known to make a significant impact on Enlightenment thinkers such as Montaigne. The list of topics covered in ‘Moralia’ is quite varied but all fall into the category of self- or cultural-improvement. Such topics include how to educate children, how to teach and learn virtue, the value of friendship, validity of oracles and superstition, causes of natural phenomena, and the talkativeness of women!

This rare, late 16th-century edition of Plutarch’s ‘Moralia’ was translated out of the Greek and into French by Jacques Amyot, published in three volumes.
