In this article I note a change of approach among historians of ancient philosophy with regard to the Roman philosophers Cicero and Seneca. Today they are not just studied as sources for earlier thinkers but as independent authors who pursue an agenda of their own within their Roman context. After a few observations on the viability of the notion of ‘Roman philosophy’. I discuss a number of recent publications that may provide useful background information in reading the texts by Cicero and Seneca concerned with the happy life that have been selected for the national examination in 2018.
