Dia das Mães: Carta de Sêneca a sua mãe Hélvia

Neste dia das mães voltamos a comentar a carta de consolação enviada por Sêneca a sua mãe.

Nesta carta vemos como Sêneca, ao contrário do costume romano, incentiva também as mulheres a estudarem filosofia:

“Por isso incito-lhe a procurar refúgio onde todos os que procuram conforto para suas mágoas deviam refugiar-se: nos estudos da filosofia. Ela saberá sarar sua ferida, arrancando de você toda queixa.  Oh! se meu pai, que era o melhor dos homens, mas estava demasiadamente preso aos costumes dos antepassados, tivesse desejado que você fosse ensinada ao invés de informada somente dos preceitos da sabedoria! Agora, contra os golpes da fortuna, precisaria não procurar auxílios mas servir-se dos que teria. Mas meu pai não quis que você seguisse sua inclinação para esses estudos por causa das mulheres que se servem da cultura não para tirar regras de sabedoria e sim para enfeitar-se com ela como com custosa joia. Todavia, graças à sua pronta inteligência, assimilou mais que quanto pudesse fazer supor o tempo dedicado à cultura: já lançou os alicerces de toda disciplina. Volte para ela, agora: ela lhe protegerá. Ela lhe consolará” (Consolação a Minha Mãe Hélvia XVII, 4-5)
