The Consolation Of Philosophy

Author: Boethius
Landmark of Western thought written by a sixth-century Roman statesman and philosopher awaiting execution. Comprising a dialogue in alternating prose and verse between Boethius and his spiritual guardian, the book concerns happiness: how to achieve and maintain it amid life’s inevitable pain. A cornerstone of medieval humanism, the work remains a source of comfort and consolation for contemporary readers. Translated with an introduction and notes by Richard Green.
