Opera philosophica. Index verborum, listes de fréquence, relevés grammaticaux
For the entire philosophical writings of Seneca this volume offers:
– an index verborum in which all forms of a particular word are listed in a
consistent order under the same rubric.
– Listes de fréquence (frequency lists). Two lists are provided for each type of
work. The first, alphabetically ordered, specifies the frequency of a given word
within the entire corpus and within each individual work. The second tabulates all
the words according to decreasing frequency.
– Relevés grammaticaux (grammatical tabulations) present, in coded form, all
morphological appearances observed in the texts.
This monumental collection of data allows, especially through the frequency lists,
research not only of a traditional, but also of a frequential nature concerning style,
theme, chronology and so forth. The index is based on the Teubner editions (De
Beneficiis et De Clementia ed. Hosius, 1900; Epistulae Morales ed. Hense, 1914;
Dialogi ed. Hermes, 1923).
